Journey of Sorrow, Journey of Hope

Author: Carol Handy

Availability: In stock


Journey of Sorrow, Journey of Hope tells the story of Shirin, a woman living in Persia in the mid-1800s, a time of great religious fervor. When the government burns her home because of her association with the Baha'i Faith, a religion considered to be a heresy by the Persian government, she is forced to leave her native land and seek protection in Russia, where she falls in love and learns about the Founder of the Baha'i Faith, Baha'u'llah. When she must leave Russia to settle in France, she has learned much about the new Faith, as well as discovered the strength within herself to survive and overcome hardship.

Carol Handy is a published poet and has written speeches and articles on the Baha'i Faith, along with a widely read Baha'i-themed fairytale called "The Dragons of Rizvania." She has served on local Baha'i institutions and also at the World Center of the Baha'i Faith in Haifa, Israel, as the editor of the Baha'i International News Service in 1989 and 1990.
