Within Paravent Walls captures you from the very first page and won’t let you go. So much more than just a portrait of a dysfunctional family, the book unravels a battle between young and old, female and male, individual and family, love and hate, freedom and captivity, and ultimately life and death. Unlike anything I have ever read before – you will definitely keep thinking about these pages when you go to sleep at night! -F. on Goodreads
