    "There is so much in here. It skips around a lot to tell different stories but always goes back to the diary of Sera. It's a good book but a little sad."

    "Ellis Island is always fascinating to me. I find the idea of a landing place for new immigrants to be extremely interesting and hopeful for new generations. When this book shifted to Ellis Island, I was very excited to see where it would go. I found myself talking about it with my wife all day!"
