Publisher Description

In Together Tea, Marjan Kamali’s delightful and heartwarming debut novel, Darya has discovered the perfect gift for her daughter’s twenty-fifth birthday: an ideal husband. Mina, however, is fed up with her mother’s years of endless matchmaking and the spreadsheets grading available Iranian-American bachelors. Having spent her childhood in Tehran and the rest of her life in New York City, Mina has experienced cultural clashes firsthand, but she’s learning that the greatest clashes sometimes happen at home.

After a last ill-fated attempt at matchmaking, mother and daughter embark on a return journey to Iran. Immersed once again in Persian culture, the two women gradually begin to understand each other. But when Mina falls for a young man who never appeared on her mother’s matchmaking radar, will Mina and Darya’s new-found appreciation for each other survive?

Together Tea is a moving and joyous debut novel about family, love, and finding the place you truly belong.

Together Teal

Great book. I didn't want to put it down.

I just couldn’t get into this book.

I thought that the story of a mother and daughter who return to Iran to find their relationship would be very heartwarming. But I didn’t enjoy the style of the writing. I couldn’t attach to any of the characters or situations. It just felt mundane. I stopped reading after a couple of chapters, before they could even go back to Iran. Now, someone might say to me, but you never got to the good part! But a book has to draw me in from the very first page if I’m to invest my time and vanish into the world of the story.
