“In this brief review it is quite difficult to convey the full flavor ofthis mesmerizing feast of a book…However, best of all we must notforget Lachi’s distinctive, unique and sometimes even chilling voice as she crafts a stunning, sprawling novel where enormous risks are taken, not least that of demanding our understanding for the monstrous andunthinkable. In addition, her development of plot is perfectlycalibrated as she maintains all of the elements of the yarn insuspension.”
-Norm Goldman of BookPleasures

“Youmay not realize it when you first pick up this book, but you have stepped unsuspectinginto a whimsical, captivating, unpredictable world and you will not be let outuntil the final stroke of Lachi’s pen.Thiswas a thoroughly enjoyable read; all 365 pages easily done in one sitting. Asemotionally exhausting as it is exciting, the Ivory Staff introduces Lachi as aconsummate writer.  Idare say this timeless story will age well; I shall be returning to it againand again. “
