5 Stars! "A Brilliant Book!" said Vonnee Lee

`*•.¸¸ Just $2.99 till 2/15`*•.¸¸
"This is quite the most beautiful and poignant story I've read in a long while. I found the style of writing both poetic and romantic. In some small way it reminded me of the ‘Song of Solomon’. Not one character, no matter how small the part they play in the story is side-lined. Each one is written with such depth. The author's portrayal of Spanish Harlem is so artistic; one can almost smell the food and spices in the market place. This is a story based around the powerful human emotions of, deception, mistrust, love and betrayal.

Paula Rose Michelson’s book, is about Naomi a lovely young Jewish woman who… when I first started to read the book, I confess I thought the old lady offering to rescue the Naomi from Ellis Island official was kidnapping her! However, the opposite was true; Tia takes Naomi home and looked after her because of unforeseen circumstances Naomi is stranded and alone on Ellis Island. The old Tia rescues her, gives her a life and a future.

When Tia dies, Naomi takes over the work of helping the vulnerable young women arriving at Ellis Island. One day she rescued the wrong girl...Lola. What a nasty piece of work she is! I will say no more as I do not wish to give away any part of the story.

It's a brilliant book, and really makes one think about…I am so pleased I had the opportunity to read it. I can't wait to read book two!"
