“Shirin’s story is the story of the Bahá’í Faith, woven with heartrending drama and rich historical detail as well as spirituality and hope”.

What better way to explain the history and tenets of the Bahá’í Faith than through a historical/religious fiction novel? Carol Handy did just that with “Journey of Sorrow, Journey of Hope” (Baha’i Publishing; 2014). This is her third book – and the second Bahá’í-themed work.
The gripping, insight-filled story takes place in different locations – in Persia during a time of great religious fervor during the mid-1800s and later in Europe following the persecution of the Bahá’í Faith, which persists up to this day.
“Journey of Sorrow, Journey of Hope” follows Shirin, an elderly Persian woman whose home is torched down by the government in its persecution of the faith, which is considered as apostasy from Islam. She is forced to flee to Europe, where she falls in love and learns about her Bahá’í Faith and its founder, Baha’u’llah. What follows next is a century-long spiritual journey of sorts for Shirin and her daughter across foreign lands.
Follow the story of Shirin and learn more about the Bahá’í Faith in Carol Handy’s “Journey of Sorrow, Journey of Hope.” Order a copy today through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Await the public display of “Journey of Sorrow, Journey of Hope,” as well as the author’s other two books “Prayers from the Land of the Living” and “The Dragons of Rizvania,” at the upcoming Miami Book Fair 2019 Street Fair on November 22-24, 2019 at Miami Dade College (Wolfson Campus) in Downtown Miami.
