Entertainment Weekly

“A wonderfully intricate debut novel . . . exploring the potency of heritage and the pain of exile.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

USA Today

“A fine novel of cultural and generational tension.”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“A moving look at the plight of the immigrant torn between two homes.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“With richly descriptive language evoking the riotous streets of Iran to the comfortable London suburbs, Crowther’s well-crafted narrative will keep readers eagerly turning the pages of this poetic debut about mothers and daughters.”

“Crowther’s debut is spellbinding, and her cross-cultural perception and empathy are illuminating and affecting.”

“An unusual and satisfying read.”
The Guardian, London

“A book about edges . . . where unconscious drives become seemingly rational decisions; and where different cultural values confront each other . . . Crowther [is] a novelist of exceptional honesty and grace.”
