Summary
""Mothers of Sparta is a superbly written book, at times gently poetic, at times devastating. I was spellbound from start to finish." -Tim O'Brien "Beautiful and painful all at once. A heartbreakingly honest book that I couldn't put down." - Jenny Lawson, #1 NYT bestselling author "In Mothers of Sparta, Dawn Davies writes like an avenging angel. Her stories are poetic, moving, provocative, and bracingly honest as she trains her lucid gaze on some of life's deepest complexities: In the face of terror, betrayal, and impending loss, how do we love? And what does that love cost us? I've never read a book quite like this one, shot through with the light of an extraordinary talent and spirit." -- Dani Shapiro, author of Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage --
