In the Shadow of the Shahs
Finding Unexpected Grace
Farifteh V. Robb
“This is a beautifully written autobiography of a remarkable life. Farifteh Robb brilliantly tells her journey of faith and love across two cultures. I found it captivating and could not put it down.” John Clark, Chairman of the Friends of the Diocese of Iran
Have you ever wondered what it is like to survive a revolution? To be a religious convert, adopting a different nationality and starting afresh in a new discipline? To fall deeply in love, despite the obstacles to a burgeoning relationship?
All of these things, and more, happened to Farifteh Robb. This is the fascinating and moving story of a woman’s journey between two cultures – her Persian Muslim heritage and her Christian life in Scotland. It describes the challenges she faced in an Iran torn apart by political turmoil, and in her new life in the UK.
Written with passion, candid reflection, and a gentle wit, this is the story of a life lived in faith in a multicultural world.
