Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Written This book offers a multitude of perspectives on a time in history that should be remembered. It has a unique way of capturing the view points and opinions of different characters, taking you on an emotional journey with each character. One of my favourite books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Forgotten Histories Often History is told from the perspective of the victors and we never learn the perspectives of those who's stories differ. The Ash Garden offers multiple perspectives while dealing with social justice issues in a writing style fueled with rapid imagery and emotion. While compelling and well written, I found the story lagging at certain chapters. With that being said, I still enjoyed the book immensely and was very pleased with the reading experience upon reaching the final chapter. I recommend this book for historical-fiction enthusiasts, or those who feel a kinship or interest in the subject matter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ash Garden Masterful... Bock's poignant imagery gives us an intimate glimpse into the lives of two characters linked together by destiny. Words leap off the page and into our consciousness, leaving an indelible impression. The Ash Garden is a compelling study; both for the simplistic beauty of the language, and as a window into the ravages of war and the implications for social justice.
