• Interesting story idea but the characters were very similar and the end seemed a bit sudden. – Shannon
• I liked this book. I almost felt like a nosy neighbor. The stories were interesting/frustrating/depressing. I only wish we could have had a chapter of Maribel’s point of view. – Steph
• I thought it interesting to read this book right after Orphan Train as they both touch upon the immigrant experience during different periods in history. Other than that, I had trouble with the characters feeling flat. – Danica
• I started it, but like others, I did not have time to finish. I am really enjoying it. – Tami
• This was a really interesting and engaging read. I truly cared about the characters and was so sad at the outcome. However, I do appreciate the author giving us a sad ending, rather than taking the easier route of “all is well.” – Marlo
• I think the extra characters detracted from the story. I liked that it took place in Delaware, for a different perspective than the big-city. – Kerry
• I liked this book, but don’t think it needed all the extra short chapters. Relatable characters and an easy read. – Carrie
