Historical Novel Society writes, "Ashling’s unique multicultural background strikes a soundly authentic note for the period. From cuisine to fashion to linguistic project, Ashling puts the reader in the story, and adds a captivating female perspective on the book’s male relationships. The conflict and secrecy central to gay expression in the postwar period plays out not only in the central characters, but in the women in their lives, most notably Victoria, Gregorio’s mother, and John’s potential marital suitors.
The book will appeal to a broad audience and leave them looking forward to more. Well done, and highly recommended."
