Amazon.com reviewers: "With two more volumes to go, the reader will be looking forward to the next episode with the same eagerness as addicts of Downton Abbey."
"The....challenge that this family faced during their move from a plush and convenient lifestyle in England to the shockingly isolated and primitive wilderness was delivered in a romantically, historical context... I found myself extremely curious... could not put the book down."
"......Sheila Myers ties the past in with the present by following parallel lives in a fascinating way."
"...the characters--especially the minor characters--have unexpected depth and nuance. This was a hugely satisfying read."
Goodreads: "In addition to a wonderful story that keeps the reader engaged and unable to put the book down, Myers has some very nice imagery, such as “the sleigh slogged along, crushing the snow with a sound like thousands of eggshells breaking in its wake.”
