This beautiful, beautiful book calls to mind The Elegance
of the Hedgehog, for its artistry and heart, and for its two
unlikely soul mates-one old, one young, both harboring private
grief, shaping their lives around what is missing, looking for
families fate has denied them. I dare anyone to barricade
their heart against this enchanting novel.
-- Stephanie Kallos, author of BROKEN FOR YOU AND SING THEM HOME
Soffer's breathtaking prose interweaves delectable descriptions of food with a profoundly redemptive story about loss, self-discovery, and acceptance. * O: The Oprah Magazine *
Delicate and impressive ... Soffer's style is natural and assured whether she's writing about adolescent longings, adult sorrow, or the seemingly endless and sometimes thankless desire to please one's parent. -- Meg Wolitzer, author of The Position and The Uncoupling
A work of beauty in word ... Ms. Soffer is a master artist painting the hidden hues of the human soul. Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots is an intelligent work in the vein of Azar Nafisi where the humanity of the characters transcends cultural or national differences and illustrates commonalities. * New York Journal of Books *
