Ladybug Lin Reviews CITADEL OF WOMEN by Lisabet Sarai...5 STARS

The best reads, to me, are the ones that echo and rebound within you long after your eyes have absorbed the final words.

CITADEL OF WOMEN by Lisabet Sarai, is such a read.

I learned so much by reading this short story, I'm not sure where or how to begin.

Cambodia...a country steeped in history stretching back before modern practices and scarred by the mercurial disrespect of some who could not value its most intrinsic asset...its people.

Two cultures meet in this sweeping panaorama of Eastern majesty; Doa from the United States, a tourist, and Che, a guide.

Both come into the story's telling with their histories, (that cannot be altered)...hurts, and needs so deep they resonate from the marrow of one's bones.

Passion, steamy tendrils curling from the humidity squeezing all around them...woman and man...here today...together...but what of tomorrow?

Citdel of Women has stayed with me. I ache for Che and Doa...they are real. I CARE about them, and that is what makes this a powerful story no one should miss.

So I am stepping up, a meager but avid reader, and awarding Lisabet Sarai, five thunderous stars for this book.

Citadel of Women is available at the Muse It Up Publishing Bookstore.

Thank you so much, Lin! I'm so pleased you liked the book.

The setting is based on a trip we took to Angkor - where we saw first hand the glories of the past, and the terrible poverty in the present.

Hugs,
Lisabet
