Reviews

The story honors the heroism of the mothers and grandmothers of the missing ... The first half is tense and dramatic, yet the story becomes truly remarkable later on * Booklist * Brothers, who as a journalist spent time in Latin America, is at her best capturing the pitched atmosphere of Buenos Aires as the coup unfolds ... Enjoyable * Kirkus Reviews * A sublimely told and heartbreaking story. While devastating in its depiction of the depths to which humanity can sink, its evocative language and splendid characters make it a pleasure to read * Better Reading * Heart-wrenching ... a story all of us should read * Daily Mail on Hinterland * A moving account ... Brothers' elegant prose holds sentimentality at bay, complementing some impressive reportage * Financial Times * Intensely evocative ... Impressively accomplished * Independent * An illuminating and timely story ... a book that haunts and shames in equal measure * Guardian * There is poetry on every page, as well as pity, and the poetry is not always in the pity but in the joy of being alive on this earth * Irish Times *
