Book Beginnings: Children of the Jacaranda Tree

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Children of the Jacaranda Tree by Sahar Delijani

"Azar sat on the corrugated iron floor of a van, huddled against the wall."

At first I thought she was being kidnapped, but Azar is a political prisoner, being brought to a hospital to have her baby.

The opening made me think Azar was being kidnapped too. I'm wondering where the book is set. Where do Jacaranda trees grow?
My Friday post features MIDDLE-AGED CRAZY.
