Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review - Janet Kaye
"A novel of Jews in India…Compelling, informative, absorbing.”
Kirkus Review - Jim Kobak
"Exhilarating…Suspenseful!”
Cleveland Plain Dealer - Sid Abrams
“A fascinating tale…Meticulously researched…Delves deeply into the history of the Jewish People in India.”
Library Journal - Roberta Lisker
"An epic, well-researched historical novel of the life of a wealthy Jewish family set in 19th-century India. The first-person narration grabs readers from the start with the murder of the mother of the main character, Dinah Sassoon."
Amazon - Lauren Kermode
"Flowers in the Blood" enthralled me. Aside from its being well written and engaging from the very first page, it is an exotic account of a little know piece of world history: the J opium trade in turn-of-the-century India. In addition, its descriptions of the countryside, the mountains, the cities of that place and time make "Flowers in the Blood" an armchair adventure. I was drained by the end of the journey."
