When Faraz, a young teacher, accepts his uncle’s offer of a summer job, he had no idea the position he was about to find himself in. Discovering the secret letters hidden in the walls of an Islamic prison from Xavar to her husband, Faraz must decide what is more important: Xavar’s tragic story inside the prison or the personal danger he may face for revealing it.
The Secret Letters from X to A is a compelling historical novel. As any novel of this category many of the events are based on true facts. Nasrin Parvaz is an Iranian refugee activist living in London, UK. She spent 8 years in different prisons in Iran. One of those was located in what used to be the Joint Committee Interrogation Centre and which is now know as the Ebrat Museum in Teheran where the main facts take place. The novel defies the Islamic Regime by introducing women who resist the brutal violation of their Human Rights. They could be tortured, raped and executed, yet their power and strength is present throughout the book.
