This is a story that is real and enlightening while also being empowering.

Thank you Edmond Salus for bringing us a lead character who was so wonderful to follow. From his younger years to his older ones. From his lowest lows to his highs. He was a great character to go on this journey with. I loved the way the book wasn’t predictable, it doesn’t shy away from real issues and really brings those to light. Ups and downs along the way, great writing and great imagery and emotion throughout. Edmond Salus has brought us a great book!

I think the synopsis really lets you know what you ware going to get with this story. The thing that really stood out to me was the fact that it is a very well written book. There are a lot of ups and downs for these characters and we really do get to go along with their journey. It's a story that spans a long period of time, a lifetime and there are elements from every time in Sonny's life. It's such a great depiction of those trying to better their lives in a different country. ...more

A story that flowed and the characters brought to life by the way the author depicted them.
Sonny is such a great lead character to lead this story.
This was a good story well written and thoroughly enjoyable.
This is one of those bedtime books that keep you up late, thinking, ‘Just one more page . . .’

From the characterization, to the drama, to the setting, I think that every moving part to this book really came together and made it unforgettable.

This is just an overall well balanced book. Sonny grew tremendously from start to end. The journey itself was at the forefront and that really came through.
