Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

"Ravaged by the Vietnam War, a culturally ingrained family from Laos leaves everything behind to pursue a dangerous journey across the Mekong River leading them from Thailand to the United States in Russell's novel. As each character's internal conflicts unfold, his or her unique voice sheds light on the different aspects of Hmong culture. The plots expansiveness is seamless and Russell aptly integrates the culture conflict. The family's richly drawn tension culminates in a grueling court case that affects all involved. A multifaceted tale of complex characters finding new lives in their new world."

Review

"Ravaged by the Vietnam War, a culturally ingrained family from Laos leaves everything behind to pursue a dangerous journey across the Mekong River leading them from Thailand to the United States in Russell's novel. A multifaceted tale of complex characters finding new lives in their new world." 
                                                  -  Kirkus Reviews

"Across the Mekong River is a beautifully complex story of the immigrant experience, one that surprised me with its wonderfully flawed characters and intense emotion...one of the best books I've read this year."                                                                              
                                                   -  Diary of an Eccentric Book Blog

"From the opening of the Prologue of her new book, "Across the Mekong River," author Elaine Russell pulls you into a tale at once fascinating and engaging...Russell strives to produce a story that goes beyond one family or one culture's experience and explore more about the human condition.  It is a very worthwhile and entertaining read."
                                                             -  Amy Doeun, Hmong Times Online
                                                                          

"Acrossthe Mekong River by Elaine Russell is a coming-of-age tale, which crosses theMekong River as well as an ocean, a continent, and cultures...
This coming-of-age novel...easily bridges young adult/adult fiction. It is a worthwhile readfor all."
                                                               -  Judge, 23rd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards
