We're thrilled to share a STARRED Kirkus review for A Country Between: Making a Home Where Both Sides of Jerusalem Collide by Stephanie Saldana (978-1-4926-3905-3; Feb. 2017)!
“Saldaña builds an impressive sense of genuine emotion, and she vividly explores the array of life in that seething section of Jerusalem…a serene memoir in which the author takes valuable time to regard the character of the Palestinian people and their way of life.”
This follows a positive review from Publishers Weekly:
“This candid, tenderly rendered love story begins in a Syrian monastery, where Saldaña (Bread of Angels), a Texas-born journalist, falls for Frédéric, a French novice monk...Saldaña describes in wonderful detail how, as their family expands, they stay in a place where so little makes sense, guided solely by their hope in the future.”
The STARRED Kirkus review will appear in the December 15 edition.
