What Cindy's readers have to say:
"Now and again there comes along a book that holds a personal message forme. I believe these messages come from God. In that alone I’m so very gladI read this book. The influence a book can have on a reader is a specialmessage gleaned from this book. Annie looks to the characters in TheWonderful Wizard of Oz while dealing with her life challenges. Any readercan relate to having been influenced by a book."  ~ChristianManifesto, 2014 Lime Award Nominee

Amazon reviewer: "A good historical novel will take you back through theyears and let you remember a time you never experienced. Cindy Thomson'sEllis Island series is doing just that. A great historical novel won'tstop there, though, it will also give you characters to befriend whileyou're in its pages. Cindy Thomson's books do that as well."~TheophilusFarrell4
