    Recently I finished Veil of Roses by Laura Fitzgerald and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    It is about Tamila, a 27 year old Iranian women who comes to America for 3 months on a birthday Visa from her parents to find a husband and stay in the States.

    She stays with her older sister and her sister's husband, takes an English class, goes to Starbucks, and falls in love with America, her freedom and an American.

    I liked this book for a couple of reasons. Tamilia is likable, the characters are interesting, the story witty, her potential husbands comical but the biggest reason is that I was reminded of how much I love my freedom. As an American I know we take this for granted. I try not to but I don't think we realize just how lucky we are to live in a Country where we have choices.

    It was interesting looking through the eyes of someone who never knew freedom and watching her amazement as she acquaints herself with the freedom she and everyone should have if they so desire.

    Her reactions to police, her friends, a free sample at Starbucks and sneakers were uplifting, humorous and captivating.

    The ending was somewhat predictable and I wish that the conclusion I was hoping for, played out longer than the last 4 pages. I was happy with the ending and reminded of how "free" we really are.

    The cover of this book is what originally attracted it to me but as soon as I read the summary I knew I was hooked and couldn't put it down till the last page. I was never bored by parts in the story as it kept a swift page-turning plot. The main character is someone you can really relate to and end up loving. I liked how the story wan't so unbeliveable...it's about an average woman's predicaments and success. It's a book that leaves you happy and satisfyed yet wishing for another. Modern and chic, all my girlfriends loved it!

    I purchased this book on a Monday after work and finished it that same night.. Once I started reading this I couldn't go to bed until I'd gotten to the end. As a lover of romance novels, contemporary fiction, and chick-lit, this book had all the important elements of all three genres. It was uplifting, heartbreaking, and just so very touching. It's definitely a book that every woman, and man, should read.
