"Based on her parents' accounts, author, Tina Boscha, writes tragically, sensitively and honestly about life on the harsh North Sea coast during the German occupation ... The book is well written and historically significant ... Boscha has best-seller potential."
--Portland Book Review
"Her book is engrossing and horrifying at the same time, a tale of what it's like to be hungry, sick and worried that life, family and freedom will never be the same again, all the while terrified that it won't matter because death will take it all."
"This enovel is beautifully written, with descriptions and details that are exquisite and eloquent. Boscha is not only a competent writer, she excels at it."
--eNovel Reviews, February 2012
"River in the Sea is a fascinating delve into coming of age tales, recommended."
--Taylor's BookShelf, Midwest Book Review Bookwatch
"I was riveted within a few dozen pages as one of the pivotal events of the book unfolded. Right riveted ... And the pacing was so well done - I could not put it down."
--Jessica, The Bluestocking Society
