Reviews

"The author has done a wonderful job on character development and the description of the fire in the factory was compelling."

Delaware County Library System, September 2008

"The fictionalization of a real historical event and the dramatization of early labor issues involves reader[s] in a fast-paced, gripping story hard to put down."

Children's Bookwatch, May 2008

"This book will serve to inform readers on the working climate of the time as well as the struggles of immigrants to conform to a new country and new society."

Irving Independent School District, March 24, 2010

"Woven together in perfect compatibility, the historical background and fictional plot give readers a clear insight into Jewish immigrants and ritual . . . and unfair labor practices, and there is excellent foreshadowing of the fire."

". . . brings American history to life through fictional characters and historically accurate plots."
