"The cry of every refugee, the eerie sense of being transparent, dispensable, irrelevant, emerges powerfully from Alyson Richman's intricately plotted and touching narrative"

— Wall Street Journal


"An engrossing examination of the prisons people create for themselves and the way they accustom themselves to suffering until liberation seems as painful as captivity. This is an ambitious exploration of political and personal struggles."

— Publishers Weekly


"Places an Ayn Rand lens on societal ethics against personal loyalty and safety… Deep, thought provoking philosophical questions on the need of an individual and a family against the demands of deadly leadership and a nation."

— Midwest Book Review
