The Gardener of Baghdad by Ahmad Ardalan

Adnan, a bookshop owner in Baghdad finds an old book in his store and starts reading it.  But once he's started, he just can't stop, as it's the story of Ali - the Gardener of Baghdad who disappeared back in the 50s.

I really enjoyed this gentle story.  The book is paced as Adnan reads it. It is a love story across class and religion back in the times when it really did make a difference.

We are taken on a journey through hard times but where love tries to conquer all.  This was an enjoyable read indeed.
