Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A strong, powerful novel.” Elle
“Betancourt writes unflinchingly…[She] tells an anguished story of passion, sacrifice, imprisonment, torture, and exile with often gruesome detail, historical accuracy, and rising suspense…Betancourt orchestrates an intimate conflict and shocking denouement that fuse the personal and the political in a twenty-first-century variation on Greek tragedy.” Booklist
“Betancourt, the victim of a well-known, six-year-long political kidnapping in ­Colombia, can certainly be taken seriously as a chronicler of South American brutality and repression, and she does not turn away from the ugly truth in her fiction debut…The novel generally propels the reader along with its conviction and moral force.” Library Journal
