Allah's Garden is a true story focusing on a Moroccan doctor's 25-year detainment by militants in the Sahara Desert and is interwoven with an American volunteer's own journey and adventures while in Morocco.
"Allah's Garden is a sad reminder of the cost of war in Western Sahara.... Hollowell's powerful narrative...is an excellent account of a humanitarian disaster...."
--James Sater, author of Morocco: Challenges to Tradition and Modernity
"Hollowell deserves kudos.... There are many reasons to read Allah's Garden: It's a fast-paced and well-written adventure story with few equals, especially as it's true. The warmth of the regard between author and subject is a palpable presence, effusing the reading experience with a tenderness uncommon in such stories...bringing readers more global awareness."
--New Spirit Journal
"Allah's Garden is a harrowing tale of the fate of more than 1700 Moroccans held as POWs...[it] is told with great sensitivity."
--Helen Ranger, author of Fez Encounter (Lonely Planet)
"A real page-turner...very psychologically astute. The images stick with the reader well beyond the pages."
--Café du Livre, Marrakesh, Morocco
"Allah's Garden...uses many strategies that make a war tale both gripping and bearable. The build of tension...is well extended, keeping the reader on chair-edge. With an exquisite sense of balance, Hollowell manages to tell everything without tarrying too lengthily in gory or painful details. The book is a tour de force of blending authenticity with grace and taste."
--North West Prime Time
