Review:

Riveting. "Be Safe I Love You" is haunting and rare: the story of a young female soldier returning home, torn between love and rage, unable to recognize who she once was. In lyrical, assured prose, Hoffman probes the ravages of war on the survivors, the power of forgetting, the defiance of love, and the possibility of forgiveness. "Be Safe I Love You" will make your heart race, and then break it. --Reiko Rizzuto, author of Hiroshima in the Morning

A gorgeously written, heart-wrenching novel that explores the damage inflicted upon a veteran of the Iraq war, and the varieties of love that ultimately sustain her. Cara Hoffman s "Be Safe I Love You" is a tour-de-force of literary suspense by a brilliant, fearless writer simply the best book I ve read in ages. --Elizabeth Hand, award-winning author of Available Dark and Generation Loss

"Be Safe I Love You" isn t just a beautiful and unsparing tale of a soldier s return from the Iraq War, though it is certainly that. It is a reckoning with the moral disaster of that conflict, one that no amount of news and reporting can give us because it requires more than facts. It requires the kind of imaginative transformation Cara Hoffman has accomplished here, turning the story of one young woman s journey from working poverty to war and home again into a song of lament for a country that has lost its way. --Adam Haslett, author of Union Atlantic "and the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-nominated You Are Not a Stranger Here "

"Cara Hoffman gets it. She gets what war does to soldiers, inside and out, and she gets what they must face when they come home from war. Lauren Clay is a character readers won't forget: determined, admirable, and so loving that even as she goes to hell and back, we are ready to go with her. A riveting novel full of compassion for veterans and those who love them."--Helen Benedict, author of Sand Queen and The Lonely Soldier
