Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic read! by Rona Shaffran, Ottawa, Canada Nicolai`s Daughters is wonderful. I did NOT want it to finish. Please write a sequel! I am so impressed by the realism of the characters, the humane way they are treated, which made me feel very close to them, and by the message of renewal and hope in the story. The past lives in all of us, sometimes in tortuous ways. Facing it can free us, and the entire family. What a strong and meaningful message. I particularly enjoyed the dialogue in the family scenes, which could just as easily be any family that is emotionally warm and engaged with each other. The dialogue is so true to life, I could hear my aunts and cousins speaking the words (albeit with a different accent!). The writing is excellent, almost Hemingwayesque; always true and to the point. The short sentences contrast well with the powerful theme. Thank you for this excellent novel which is so human and touching. I highly recommend this book - do yourself a favour and read it soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific story about a little-known aspect of Greek history, with a Canadian angle At first you think this is a story about a Greek-Canadian woman discovering her roots, through tragedy. Then the story peels open, layer by layer, revealing family histories and uncovering the damage wrought by war. A deeply satisfying read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compelling and evocative. A great read. This is a multi-generational story that (in part) follows a Greek-Canadian as she discovers her family history. The story involves a hitherto-unknown sister, crazy Greek relatives, and ultimately a tragic event dating back to WWII. A fascinating and multilayered tale.
