Reads like a fable or fairy tale intertwined with historical fiction. This read is full of symbolism. Jewish culture vs Arabian culture. Earth vs fire. A very fascinating read- suitable for a book club
I wouldn't say this was my favorite book, but I definitely learned a lot and am looking at the world a little differently now. My biggest gripe is that I didn't absolutely love any of the characters...however, it was cool how the author brought together folklore, history, and suspense. Worth reading

Self-reliant, humble, and stoic, they kept their stories to themselves for a lifetime, then shared them at the last possible moment so that they, and the war they won - the trauma that created our modern world - might at last be remembered. You will never forget them.
The men catapulted into space in the 20th century were interesting, sort of. The women they left back on earth were fascinating. . . . A lively account of how the wives coped with fame, fear, and loneliness.
