Anna Couani reviews Haifa Fragments
in Rochford Street ReviewThis book is as much about a woman seeking self-determination and agency as it is about trying to reconcile and overcome the cultural and political differences in the country. Bronwyn Lacken

four stars!The book teems with charlatans, eccentrics and those doing it tough in a time of hardship and prejudice. Yet Ashmere weaves a sense of hope and redemption as her characters seek
to rediscover their true selves.
