“Not for the faint of heart”: A Review

Laura’s eloquent way of telling the story of ‘Within Paravent Walls’ transports you into a different universe. Each and every character is so well constructed and in-depth that one cannot help but visualise them so clearly. I have to admit that the story gripped me so much that it was incredibly hard to put the book down and yet it had to be done in order to digest its content after every read. But I needed to know how the story would unfold and what would happen to each character. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. However I must say, this novel is not for the faint of heart. It will leave you questioning the world and the people in it. You will come to understand that every single person is going through their own trauma, some more than others, and it is up to each and every single one of us to figure out how we deal with it. Laura creates a fictional universe that is so heartbreakingly real and tangible that it leaves you pondering for a long time after you’ll have closed its cover. A true masterpiece that I hope could one day be made into a film. -M.M. on Goodreads

“By the time he painted Estefania’s features, her appearance had already been hag-ridden and struck by sheer madness and delusion. But he still did what so many other male painters did before him; he created an idol.”
― Laura Gentile, Within Paravent Walls
