by Marzieh Gail

Oxford: George Ronald, 1991
Abstract: More than a sequel to Summon Up Remembrance, this book deals with the early days of the Bahá'í faith in America and of Abdu'l-Bahá's visit in 1912. The author offers insights into Phoebe Hearst, President Wilson, the Versailles Conference, Persia and the last of the Qajar princes and Shoghi Effendi, Guardian of the Bahá'í faith. One new character is Marzieh Gail herself, who as a young girl accompanied her parents to their diplomatic posts and witnessed many of the events which she describes with a child's charm, humour and perception.
