Another Terrific Review for Lottie / Publishers Weekly


"As Charlie follows clues found in mementos and memories from her beloved Nana Rose, Lottie's younger sister, she becomes intent on finding Lottie. She researches Ellis Island archives online, tracks down translators of old German and Hungarian, and telephones strangers in other cities. Ross convincingly depicts Charlie's growing passion for -- and persistence in -- her quest, together with her love for music and a blossoming crush on a fellow musician.

Family relationships, as well as issues of aging and Alzheimer's, are drawn with gentleness and compassion. Ross moves the story at a smooth pace as Charlie encounters new obstacles and overcomes them.... This is a tender, hopeful work with just the right level of suspense for younger fans of historical fiction."
