ABOUT THE BOOK
The Book of Longings is an inspiring account of one woman's bold struggle to realize the passion and potential inside her, while living in a time, place, and culture devised to silence her.
The voices of women during this time have particularly gone unheard within the histories of men. Sue has created this story out of a feeling that we need this story of Ana today; it gives her a lens to write about the feminine and about religiously ingrained attitudes towards women, marriage, and family.
This is another story, like The Invention of Wings, that Sue feels she was born to tell--heartfelt, beautifully written, fully realized, bursting with profound relationships and provocative ideas, themes, and insights. The voice here is strong, assured, and intoxicating, with rich, incantatory power.
