Reviews
Praise for House on Endless Waters

"House on Endless Waters is extraordinary--a vibrant, page-turning family mystery that not only carries us deep into Amsterdam's little-explored wartime history, but into the fascinating, complex and often painful process by which history is crafted into story." --Jennifer Cody Epstein, internationally bestselling author of Wunderland and The Painter of Shanghai

"Intricately woven and lushly layered...With achingly exquisite, delicate prose, Elon explores the creative mind's power to reimagine a life and memory's power to recognize truth. An unforgettable read." --Lynda Cohen Loigman, author of The Two-Family House and The Wartime Sisters

"House on Endless Waters is a haunting and lyrical meditation on who we are and where we come from, on how our past shapes our present and our art. Emuna Elon's gorgeously intricate novel is beautifully written and moving." --Jillian Cantor, bestselling author of The Lost Letter and In Another Time

"Emuna Elon has given us an elegant, eloquent novel--a story in which time and language melt to reveal truths that could be told in no other way. House on Endless Waters is at once an Escher print of a tale and devastatingly, inescapably real." --Rachel Kadish, bestselling author of The Weight of Ink

"I read this book in excitement and wonder. It's not only a touching and fascinating book, but a sophisticated one as well." --Amos Oz
