A New York Times Bestselling Author

Teera returns to Cambodia for the first time since her harrowing escape to America as a child, carrying a letter from a man who claims he knew her father in the Khmer Rouge prison where he disappeared twenty-five years ago. A lyrical hymn to the power of forgiveness, Music of the Ghosts is an unforgettable journey through the embattled geography of the heart.


Customer Reviews

“Ratner, herself a Cambodian refugee, has penned another haunting, unforgettable novel.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Lush with tropical heat and heated emotions . . . impossible to put down.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred)

“Ratner's sophomore title should place her squarely alongside Yiyun Li, Khaled Hosseini, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, writers who have miraculously rendered inhumanity into astonishingly redemptive literary testimony.”
