"Another Ocean to Cross by Ann Griffin is an important book for all citizens of the world to read, especially during these turbulent times. It is a valid description of Germany during World War II and the plight of a Jewish family."
Another Ocean to Cross can sit comfortably with World War II books like The Nightingale or a pre-revolutionary novel like My Name Is Resolute. Knowing friends who have lived through similar experiences validated this story even though Renata is a fictional character. I enjoy the challenge of finding if a book will hook me on the first page and make me read straight through to the end. After the first thirty pages, I was so immersed that I had to reschedule my activities for the next day, and because of appointments, it took me three days to follow her adventures to a most gratifying ending. Well written, Mrs. Griffin. I look forward to your next book.
"This book is a page-turner till the very end, resonant with deeper questions than most books of historical fiction."
