“Vivid, compelling, as ineluctable as a Greek tragedy, A Sister to Honor illuminates the complexity of globalism's cultural disjunctions. . . . Lucy Ferriss's nuanced insight enables us to see this story from all sides -- a rare achievement.”
—Claire Messud, author of The Woman Upstairs
"If Khaled Hosseini was a woman, and had played squash long enough to have knowledge of the force and arc of the overhead serve--but more important, if he had the love for daughters and the strength and wisdom of mothers, he could have dreamed of writing A Sister to Honor."
—Amitava Kumar, author of A Matter of Rats
"A collision of cultures between star-crossed lovers redefines the meaning of honor in this modern-day literary thriller.”
—A. Manette Ansay, author of Good Things I Wish You
"Though uncompromising in her vision, Lucy Ferriss is also generous, large-hearted. A Sister to Honor is not just about hate and violence, but about love in its many forms—romantic, maternal, filial.”
—Lisa Zeidner, author of Love Bomb
“A powerful exploration of faith, family, and the deep cultural divides
that threaten to destroy these in our modern world. Ferriss has written a
remarkable novel that strikes the perfect balance between the global
and the personal.”
—Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street
