Full of beauty, even joy . . . remarkable.
Impossible not to be moved . . . Ratner is a fearless writer.
Tenaciously melodic . . . a symphony’s elevating effect on emotion.
Lush with tropical heat and heated emotions . . . impossible to put down.
Humanity shines through in her storytelling.
A sensitive, melancholy portrait of the inheritance of survival.
The soul of a poet.
Revealing . . . the endless ways that families can be forged and broken hearts held.
