No Safe Harbor - Historical Fiction at it's best

Confession.  I LOVE historical fiction.  I love learning about things that happened years ago at looking at it from the point of view of someone who was there.  This book checks all of those boxes.  No Safe Harbor is the story of a woman who has made the voyage across the Atlantic in 1896.  She is traveling from her home of Ireland to the US.  She lands at historic Ellis Island, and the imagery there is great!  I really enjoyed it.

Not only do I get the historical fiction, I get intrigue.  We get to follow Cara in the search for a missing brother.  She has to start her new life without letting anyone know that she is searching for him.  With each new chapter bringing a new wrinkle to the story this story gets my vote for intrigue. 

What else does this book have going for it?  A bit of romance.  It's complicated, and messy, and life.  I love it. 

Thanks Elizabeth Ludwig.  I'll be reading more of what you write. If you want to check out this book in paperback and for your kindle

Thank you BethanyHouse for providing me with a review copy. My opinions are my own.
