  • "[Schultz's] work serves the highest calling in a heartless world: to create opportunities for empathy, and for reflection...Through her fiction, Schultz has not only successfully captured the cultural landscape of Afghanistan in 2009, but the on-going equation of American involvement in Afghanistan. And she's packaged it in an easily accessible form, without judgment. Not, however, without hope." Read the full review here.

  • "Maybe you think you don’t want to read a novel about war in the Middle East. Perhaps Afghanistan is the last place you think you want to envision with your mind’s eye. It’s too alien, too faraway, too nightmarish. What I’m telling you is that those 'reasons' count for nothing. It is not only the American soldier and his wife back home with whom you will feel kinship but also with Aaseya (from the book’s very first page), Rahim, and Ghazél, and this story will bring home to you the truth of universal humanity like nothing else I’ve read for a long time."

    Pamela Grath of Dog Ears Books
  • “We see each character affected by their setting and yet there’s always hope, whether we find in within a wife overseas or with a lost little boy. They all are experiencing the same topics: loss, love, identity. [Schultz has] taken such a rock of a topic, heavy and seemingly unmoving, and grabbed it, molded it, and presented it with delicate edges.” Full review here.
