Yasmin Crowther on "The Saffron Kitchen" 15 May 2006
(C) Rupert Bassett
On an autumn day in London, Maryam Mazar’s dark past returns to haunt her and her pregnant daughter with tragic consequences.

Consumed by guilt, she returns to her native Iran to confront the old life she never finished before starting her new one in Britain. So goes the story of "The Saffron Kitchen", Yasmin Crowther’s first novel.

Yasmin joins Woman's Hour to discuss family tensions, the pain of exile and healing powers of homecoming.

The Saffron Kitchen, published by Little, Brown & Co, ISBN 0-316-73184-6
