"Thomson keeps her plot moving steadily forward and manages to work in a strong but unobtrusive Christian subtext into a narrative that has plenty else going on the whole time. I was steadily entertained throughout, and there were elements of Antonio's story - specifically, the struggle he has dealing with a complicatedly problematic uncle - that left a long-lasting impression." -Historical Novel Society
"Thomson weaves mystery into this story of immigrants and finding love...Thomson's passion for genealogy fuels all three novels and helps scenes of early twentieth-century immigrant life ring true. Written in an easy-to-follow narrative that is full of dialogue, the Ellis Island books are great rainy-day reads." Ohioana Quarterly, Summer 2016, REVIEWED BY MIRIAM KAHN
