Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fascinating . . . a brilliant entrée into the souls, terrors, ardors, endeavors and hopeless valor of people who have been written off. . . . Now, in a new age of people in peril and adrift on the world’s seas, this magnificent novel—and the unexpected and intricate tragedies of its powerfully imagined characters—bespeaks this eternal injustice.” -- Thomas Keneally, Bestselling author of Schindler’s List

“An unforgettable and resplendent novel which will take its place among the great historical fiction written about World War II. Hannah Rosenthal will remain in your heart and her determination to tell the story of what she saw, lived, and lost will change the way you look at the world.” -- Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife

“powerful and affecting…that sheds light on a sorrowful piece of Holocaust history.” ―
Kirkus Reviews

 “I found myself unable to put the book down.  I was able to identify with what my parents must have experienced first in Germany and later the
St. Louis. . . . beautiful and heartbreaking.”  -- Judith (Koepple) Steele, survivor of the St. Louis

 "It was so true to our many life experiences… I became enthralled with the descriptions of the emotional turmoil that these characters endured.” -- Eva (Safier) Wiener, survivor of the St. Louis

 “A vital tribute to liberty, love and justice…one of the most fascinating and extraordinary literary events of recent times.” -- Zoé Valdés, international bestselling author of The Weeping Woman

“Profound and moving …  This novel touched me personally, especially because it is written from the point of view of a girl, just like me, on the ship. This tragedy, ignored for so many years, contains a lesson the world must learn and never forget: compassion for refugees.” -- Ana Maria (Karman) Gordon, survivor of the St. Louis

"A timely must-read." ―

Armando Lucas Correa is a Cuban author, editor and an award-winning journalist, and the recipient of several awards from the National Association of Hispanic Publications and the Society of Professional Journalists.

He is the author of the international bestseller The German Girl (Atria Books/Simon & Schuster), which is now being published in fifteen languages and in more than 30 countries.

His book En busca de Emma was published by Rayo, Harper Collins in 2007 and for Aguilar, Santillana (Mexico) in 2009. The English edition, In Search of Emma was published by Harper One in October, 12th, 2021.

The Daughter's Tale (La hija olvidada) was published by Atria Books/Simon & Schuster in May 7th, 2019.

His latest historical novel, The Night Travelers, follows four generations of women who experience love, loss, war, and hope from the rise of Nazism to the Cuban Revolution and finally, the fall of the Berlin Wall. It will be published by Atria Books/Simon & Schuster January 10th, 2023.

He lives in New York City with his partner and their three children.

"Correa’s prose is atmospheric, but what’s most fascinating about this novel is his portrayal of terrified yet strong female characters who anticipate future trials and methodically work through them. Amanda knows that each decision she makes will have an impact on the next, but her goal is always survival." —SUSAN ELLINGWOOD FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW.

"Quite simply, I devoured this book! The Daughter's Tale is immersive, both heartbreaking and redemptive, steeped in harrowing historical events and heroic acts of compassion that will have you reflecting on the best and worst of the human heart has to offer. Fans of WW II history and book clubs will find depth and skillful storytelling here, but on a deeper level, searing questions about life, love, and the choices we make in the most impossible of circumstances." —LISA WINGATE, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF BEFORE WE WERE YOURS

"A deftly woven novel of women who find the courage to make impossible choices in a terrible time, of sisters split apart by the cruelties of war, of identities lost and found, of families formed and shattered. Through the stories of unique and sympathetic characters, Correa explores the tension between focusing on the present in order to move forward—and the heart-breaking consequences of forgetting who we are. The Daughter’s Tale continues to live on in my imagination long after I reached its redemptive closing scene." —KIM VAN ALKEMADE, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF BACHELOR GIRL AND ORPHAN #8

“Sweeping and searing, The Daughter’s Tale doesn’t shy away from tragedy, but author Armando Lucas Correa’s memorable latest reminds us that it is in the darkest gardens that the brightest seeds of hope are sown.”—KRISTIN HARMEL, INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE ROOM ON RUE AMELIE

"A beautifully rendered tale about sacrifice and resilience, and of a mother’s relentless will to save her daughters in the face of annihilation. Set against one of the most harrowing events committed by the Nazis on a civilian population, this novel is heart-wrenching as it is luminous, proving that familial bonds cannot be shattered by brutality or weakened by distance and time—and that it is in our darkest moments that we find our true strength. Correa’s masterful prose sank deeply into my heart." —ROXANNE VELETZOS, INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE GIRL THEY LEFT BEHIND

“Probablemente Armando Lucas Correa, visionario como son los novelistas, no sepa todavía cuán necesaria es La hija olvidada, porque de olvido se trata. De olvido, y de odio. De dolor. Lucas Correa convierte ese dolor en conocimiento. Cuán necesario es conocer, jamás olvidar”. —ZOÉ VALDÉS, AUTORA DEL BESTSELLER LA SALVAJE INOCENCIA

"As he did in The German Girl (2016), but focusing this time on occupied France, Correa offers a gripping and richly detailed account of lives torn apart by war." —BOOKKLIST/MARY ELLEN QUINN

"Armando Lucas Correa is a novelist with a poet's gift of flow. The haunting liquidity of his words pass effortlessly from character to character and this reader followed the current into the darkness, feeling every ripple breaking around me." —GENEVIEVE GRAHAM, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF TIDES OF HONOUR

“This fascinating novel of the tragic St Louis, the ship of rejected humans, is a brilliant entrée into the souls and family complexities, the terrors, ardors, endeavors and hopeless valor of people who have been written off not only by a tyrant, Hitler, but who have been rejected as a nuisance by a self-absorbed world. Over the years, and in a new, ambiguous age of people in peril and adrift on the world’s seas, this magnificent novel bespeaks this eternal injustice, as well as the unexpected and intricate tragedies of its powerfully imagined characters. “—Thomas Keneally, Bestselling author of Schindler’s List

“An unforgettable and resplendent novel which will take its place among the great historical fiction written about World War II. Hannah Rosenthal will remain in your heart and her determination to tell the story of what she saw, lived, and lost will change the way you look at the world.”

— Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife

“A vital tribute to liberty, love and justice…one of the most fascinating and extraordinary literary events of recent times.”— Zoé Valdés, international bestselling author of The Weeping Woman

“Correa brings the refugee experience alive in this in this timely must-read.” —People

“[An] ambitious debut novel… powerful and affecting…that sheds light on a sorrowful piece of Holocaust history.” –Kirkus

“Correa deploys facts to honor his fictional subjects. In a heartbreaking appendix, he lists every passenger on the St. Louis. If this ship’s manifest is insufficiently potent, Correa writes to remind us of the deadly consequences of closed borders, neglected refugees, and maligned and forgotten immigrants.” —Martha Anne Toll, The Millions

“I found myself unable to put the book down… Right away I was taken back to what my parents must have experienced” – Judith Steele, survivor of the St. Louis

“…[it was] so true to our many life experiences… I became enthralled with [the] descriptions of the emotional turmoil that [these] characters endured.” – Eva Weiner, survivor of the St. Louis

“profound and moving…[with] a lesson the world must learn and never forget: compassion for refugees.” – Ana Maria Gordon, survivor of the St. Louis

"His journey of disappointment, surprise, heartbreak and, finally, triumph serves as the narrative for his poignant Spanish-language book, En Busca de Emma: Dos Padres, Una Hija y el Sueño de una Familia".

Ana Veciana-Suarez/The Miami Herald

"El libro es como una cámara cinematográfica lanzada al interior del alma de un ser muy especial, de alguien que no quiso ceder a las presiones sociales ni renunciar a la posibilidad de entregarse con todo su amor a una nueva criatura".

Olga Connor/El Nuevo Herald
