Daylight Forever: A Memoir

"You can't escape your destiny", her father always said. As a young Baha'i girl growing up during the Islamic revolution of 1979 experiencing 8 years of Iran-Iraq war, Mahvash lived in daily terror of religious persecution and bombing raids. With her family threatened and the schools shut down, Mahvash took destiny into her own hands. She escaped under a cover of darkness on a solo trek across the border. This courageous and hopeful memoir is a portrait of a childhood cut short, a young woman's journey to flee oppression, and the story of a refugee who learns what it means to come home. Daylight Forever shares an immigrant's struggle for freedom, opportunity, and belonging and examines the tapestry of personal differences which, through tears and determination, have been woven into our shared human destiny.


Dayligth Forever is both stunning and heartbreaking. Mahvash brilliantly invites the reader into her personal journey as a refugee and allows you to experience her life through the eyes of a young girl. This memoir was gripping, visceral, and sacred work. Not only does this book need to be a required reading, it deserves a prize for the bravery that it represents in honor of every refugee both present and past. ~ For Women Who Roar Founder, Megan Febuary


Dr. Mahvash Khajavi-Harvey, the author of this memoir, has earmarked the proceeds from the sale of her book to be donated to three non-profit organizations: the Mona Foundation, the Tahirih Justice Center, and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project.
