  • SIRENS OF MEMORY is a powerful peek behind the curtain of domestic life, country, and culture. In the specificity of a war-torn time, Puja Guha uncovers the universal truths revealed by one woman's struggle to reclaim her voice, and with it her life.--Jenny Milchman, USA Today bestselling author of COVER OF SNOW
  • Harrowing and transportive, SIRENS OF MEMORY is an emotional tale of the strength we find in facing our own trauma and the beauty in rejecting victimhood. Fans of multicultural suspense and stories of women reclaiming their power should enjoy this unique and vivid journey.--Andrea Bartz, author of THE LOST NIGHT and THE HERD
  • Guha's SIRENS OF MEMORY is a gripping and complex story that spans borders and eras.--CrimeReads
  • "SIRENS OF MEMORY takes the classic SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY to new heights. It's a tense and touching exploration of domestic abuse set against the backdrop of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. I was frantically turning the pages to learn what had happened to Miriam and if she gets to keep her hard won freedom."--Cate Holahan, USA Today bestselling author of HER THREE LIVES
  • An absorbing, well-crafted choice for fans of global thrillers, Mariam's story is a dangerous journey to empowerment that shifts between harrowing flashbacks of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and her struggle to reclaim herself, even as Tareq's obsession looms.--Booklist
  • "Puja Guha's gripping SIRENS OF MEMORY balances brutality against humanity, fear against loyalty, risk against love, all on the stage of present-day Austin, Texas when the terrors of 1991's first Gulf War reignite for one family into a pulse-pounding race for the safety they'd fought so hard to win once already. Guha writes with authority and grace, intrepidly tackling life's harshest realities and warmest hopes in this tour-de-force thriller." --Jamie Mason, author of THE HIDDEN THINGS
  • "A gripping psychological thriller about the real horror that can come from the people you let in while also hitting the sweet spot between page turner and searing authenticity."--Mike McCrary, author of RELENTLESS and HARD HEARTS
  • "In its many discussions about trauma, this book offers a necessary discussion about the personal, social, and cultural attitudes regarding escape and recovery with which readers of all backgrounds can engage. Possessing the awareness of novels such as SPEAK and the boldness of NOT WITHOUT MY DAUGHTER, this book becomes an exciting read that reminds readers that although the past is a significant contributor to identity, it is not one's all-defining component."--US Review of Books
