REVIEWS – Unbound


Unbound is utterly captivating—an epic, historical page-turner with a beating heart. I loved it.” – Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

“In Unbound, John Shors draws us inside the impassioned history of China’s Great Wall, through richly intertwined characters determined to live freely, and for love. A haunting tale of the enduring bonds that anchor and save us when all the other chains—poverty, enslavement, cruelty, degradation—have been broken. A gem of storytelling.” – Paula McLain, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Wife

“An elegant and compelling epic told with Shors’ trademark understanding of human nature and ability to create characters who touch our hearts. The setting –– China's Great Wall – is as much a personality in the tale as the husband and wife who live, and love, in its shadow. In Unbound, history comes alive and literally takes your breath away and breaks your heart at the same time.” – M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author of The Library of Light and Shadow
