What they're saying about it:

"I enjoyed reading this little book. While the stories may seem a bit disconnected initially, they work in concert to give you a whole - a picture of Asha's world. You get a real sense of how it is in this time and place: it's mysteries bad and good. I think there is a great deal for the reader to gain from Mr. Lewis' writing. I must agree with the other reviewer who called his style "lyrical and fluid, spare and yet vividly evocative." I couldn't have said it better myself. Somehow, this book seemed to quiet my soul. It seems to say, "Everything's not okay, but that in itself is okay."--Amazon Reviewer
