INDIE READER BEST BOOKS OF 2014
"Gorgeous writing, exquisite detail and a thoughtful, cautious yet raw exploration of something that is absolutely illicit." - Maryse's Book Blog
"Will enchant fans of women's fiction who enjoy realistic romance, thought-provoking reads, juicy love scenes and unexpected twists of plot."- Midwest Book Reviews
"The author?s descriptive abilities, and her powerful capacity to evoke feeling with a few words or the brush of a finger, make this book an intense experience ? once opened, it is difficult to put down... Little details ? a pebble, a butterfly, the setting of a Nowruz table ? are rich with meaning and emotional resonance. And while it certainly has its share of wrenchingly heartbreaking scenes, there is a thread of joy, love and delight that winds through the entire book, bringing light to its darkest places." - Catherine Langrehr for IndieReader
