"a masterful work of historical fiction"

Her novel is based on real events and individuals. The Peru-born novelist, herself once a political refugee, explores the nature of a person’s roots and why a sense of place is so important. A Long Petal of the Sea is a masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile and belonging and one that sheds light on the way we live now.
