I was disappointed in this book. I thought the premise was fascinating - Jews who were being detained after WWII by the British as they made their way to Israel. There was so much I didn't know about this period of time, and after reading this book I still don't! I think this book could have been much more in-depth, both in the history and in the characters. The characters were almost two-dimensional - I didn't feel connected to any of them - the backgrounds were only a few pages long and scattered around the book. Unlike The Red Tent, which was outstanding, this book just didn't do justice to the story.

I went into this book with high expectations, but it just didn't quite meet these expectations. At first, it was a bit hard keeping track of all the characters, but that got easier as you learned more about each of them. I enjoyed the basic storyline and some of it was painful to read but necessary. I was a bit disappointed to see the story go on and on and then suddenly/abruptly wrap up. I did like the final glimpse the author gave of the characters. Not sorry I read it, just was a little short of my hopes for it.

A story of courage, strength and loving friendships. Ms. Diamant gives us the gift of these four women in an intimate picture of life in a haunting era of time.

Loved this book! I knew nothing about the Holocaust survivors trying to get to Israel. Learned some history while getting to know some great characters. I highly recommend this book for a great summer read!
