Editorial Reviews

Review

  • "This book is not a short, easy read, but it is well-worth your time. You will find the story to be captivating, in spite of its simplicity. You will cry with the characters, learn about human nature, and speculate on the meaning of life.....This is an excellent book!" - David Burnett, Kindle Book Review
  • "A page turner! Transports you instantly to other worlds. Strong characterization and good writing." - Prof. Dr. Abdul Jabbar, Author of 'Reading and Writing with Multicultural Literature'
  • "This isn't a romance novel. It's an exploration of some very real, very difficult social situations and weaves several subplots into the main one that follows Jane on her road to redemption and self actualization......It's designed to be thought about, internalized and talked about.....A lot to take on in a single story, but I think it is done very well. A wonderful story." - Patricia Hamill, Author and Blogger
    • "In her first novel, Noorilhuda is ambitious and appealing......With Jane Adams, she has created a nineteenth-century character who is a twenty-first century woman." - Helga Stipa Madland, Professor Emerita, University of Oklahoma
    • "An emotionally complex, well-written book. Recommended to fans of historical literary fiction with a focus on very deep character development. Those looking for a simple romance novel or any sort of light entertainment would do better looking elsewhere." - Jacob Stanley, Author of 'She Kills'
    • "Dark, depressive and angsty. A very creative and exceptionally well-written book." - Robert Grey, Author of 'The Boy Genius Detective Agency'
    • "A compassionate and heart-felt portrayal of someone down on their luck." - Suzanne Steinberg, Author of 'The Endless Control of Madness'

    From the Author

    Thank you all for the interest in the book. My sincerest hope is that you all feel inspired by the novel. Here's To Thoughtful Reading.
