5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally engaging! Sept. 3 2009
By Tanya
Format:Paperback
I just finished reading this book last night and cannot stop thinking about it. I feel like I am Iris and Ruby myself and have gone through everything these characters have gone through. A really engaging read, but be prepared to cry!

3.0 out of 5 stars Iris and Ruby Jan. 19 2009
By Susan P. Blevins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having spent two months in Cairo last year studying Arabic, I would say that this book gives a very authentic picture of life in that city. However, I found the story rather weak, and I was not drawn into the book as I would have liked. I recommend it to those who will be travelling to Egypt and are looking for some contemporary cultural background.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful piece of fiction Sept. 10 2011
By Robert S. Mellis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book while we were wandering in Canada. What an outstanding piece of writing. You are transported to Cairo and dance between World War II and today. This is some of the best writing I have experienced about life in Egypt. Iris and Ruby

Rosie Thomas has done it again. Another first class novel with characters richly portrayed, well defined and very life like. The settings along with the relevant cultures and foods are fascinating and vivid. Spanning two separate generations it flows seamlessly providing a really interesting and refreshing read.

4.0 out of 5 stars eloquent and engaging Oct. 21 2012
By laramay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I thoroughly enjoyed this story - the teenage angst and issues are spot on and the relationships being built are beautifully rendered. The bustle of Cairo comes alive and the details of each setting are so strong ones feels like we are walking the streets with the characters. A lovely book.

Rosie Thomas turned out another wonderful story.

this one not to be missed, have to admit to shedding a few tears.
Just love this Ladies Stories. Another Author who has lived for a time in the Country she writes about and does plenty of research.
