Raised in Canada to Hungarian-Croatian parents, Jennifer Klinec has travelled to countries most people are fearful of, in search of ancient recipes. Her quest leads her to Iran where she is introduced to a local woman who will teach her the secrets of the Persian kitchen. Vahid, her son, is unused to seeing an independent woman. But a compelling attraction pulls them together and pits them against the harsh Iranian laws and customs.

"The Temporary Bride is a soaring story of being loved, being fed, and the struggle to belong."
From the beginning of this story I was fascinated with it. I hesitated starting because I wasn't sure if I would be interested but I could not have been more wrong. A beautifully written account of a young Canadian woman's experience in recent times in Iran and the cultural differences that she adapted to and respected while she visited this country. A heart warming story.
