"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."
