Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Honor is the heartbeat of this novel as the Satar family grapples with their responsibilities and expectations…Afia and Shahid’s painful struggle is intricately crafted, and the cultural nuances are evocatively depicted in this thought-proving novel.” Publishers Weekly
“Ferriss’s…latest novel addresses conservative Pakistani values and the immigrant experience and explores the many meanings of honor…This stirring novel explores the psychology of honor killings and Pakistani family life. The swift-moving narrative traverses very different worlds, creating an exquisite tension that lasts well after the novel is over.” Library Journal
