Reviews

"Much of this delicately composed, elegant novel is a gentle and simple story of a woman searching for herself in a world of callous, unimaginative male supremacy.... The writing, disclosing bitter, painful truths, is deceptively lyrical."
"This is a lyrical novel that portrays the life of an Egyptian woman who is forced to accept a loveless and humiliating marriage."
"Woman may be compared to a very deep body of water; one can never predict the power of the undertow." -- Vizir Ptahhotep, "Instruction on the Subject of Women," Egypt, c. 2600 B.C.E.
