Professional reviews

"Although very brief, this look at the potential for peace inspired by the original garden in Beirut, Lebanon, is a beautiful and moving story. Two neighboring villages know nothing but strife. When Karune, a young man, throws a stone that injures Sama, things seem poised to continue as usual. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat flawlessly captures the vivid text, regional accents, and shifting emotions of the young couple and the residents of both villages. When Sama decides to create a garden to promote goodwill, only Karune showing REAL bravery, sides with her. It is then that both sides realize they have a great deal in common. In conclusion, Rosenblat skillfully asks the villagers--and listeners--a provocative question, which adds poignancy to the timeless story. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
