A wonderful book that gets better as you get into it, spanning over a century and across two continents. Ultimately, it is a wonderful mystery of who a young abandoned girl is on a ship headed to Australia. Highly recommend it.

I gave this a 3+ stars primarily for the reason that it brought back a lot of memories for me, having grown up at the same time as the main characters, plus I loved all the NYC places, many of which I had spent time at or visited, having grown up in ...more
