From the Back Cover:

"Rich, warm, and utterly satisfying . . . [A] wonderful debut from a first-rate storyteller."
--AMY TAN

"[A] polished, accomplished debut. . . Endlessly intriguing . . . The prose is richly layered with metaphor and symbolism. For the discerning reader, nothing in this finely crafted work is extraneous."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Vibrant . . . Deftly reveals the push and pull between two sisters who love each other dearly, but who face new tensions when their lives collide in midcourse. . . . A realistic story of two women trying to let go of old hurts and find love that will last."
--The New York Times Book Review
