Arezoo, an Iranian woman is living in Berkeley, California with her second husband, Robert, and working as a university professor. Recurring, terrifying dreams of eminent death lead her into therapy with a widely respected psychotherapist. As her memories unfold during therapy sessions, she flashes back to painful memories of her first marriage to Afshin, an Iranian man.Still, the dreams continue, prompting Arezoo to try hypnosis. Arezoos life takes an unexpected turn under hypnosis and she begins to channel the dramatic life story of Sogand, a woman who lived in a village in Persia (now Iran) in the late 1800s.This seemingly inexplicable experience, and her sudden, intimate knowledge of Sogands identity leads Arezoo back to Iran after many years in America. Through this womans history Arezoo makes some life changing discoveries - key to both her past and her ex-husbands tortured, secret life.Fae Bidgoli, author of The Cracked Pomegranate, once again displays her intimate understanding of the power of redemption. In The Twisted Path Home, Fae shows how by releasing judgment and fear, and releasing generational, cultural, and self-abuse, we find our purpose in life and become joy.Faes beliefs reflect her opposition to the inequality between men and women that she saw in her native Iran. She left Iran in 1978 as a young adult, hoping to find in the United States the freedoms she longed for throughout childhood and adolescence. In Iran, writing was an outlet for those longings. In the United States, she is free to follow her dreams and to write her stories.
