I became engrossed in Weather of the Heart while on a cruise. I couldnt put it down and enjoyed it thoroughly.
What a well-told story often very poignant.
Charlie. Raleigh, North Carolina
I loved it. I could hear you speak every word and it became so special that I journeyed with you . . . (At) times I had
to put it down because my eyes were too tearful to read.
Connie, New Jersey
I keep thinking about it weeks after I finished it. That wonderful little girl has been with me since I finished Weather
of the Heart. Thank you so much for writing it.

. . . finished Weather of the Heart and are busy extoling it to all and sundry. A wonderful story that you tell
Cecilia. Manalupan, NJ
. . . I really enjoyed it. . . .(S)hes a great writer and really did her homework so that we got a hisory lesson too. .
. . (W)e came to American when I was eight years too, and I also got very sick the night before we landed!
I also came to the New World from Russia as a child. I relate so much to what you describe, and it rings bells for me.
I feel like I know your parents and grandparents too. . . . My niece came for a visit, picked it up from the coffee table,
started reading and wouldnt put it down for two days until she finished it.

I cannot put Weather of the Heart down. I know it will win many awards and it must give you great satisfaction.
Lila. Newland, NC
I loved Weather of the Heart. I gave my copy to my aunt, and she stayed up late into the night reading.
Melissa. Wilksboro, NC
It was wonderful to read your story. What a gutsy girl you were . . .The whole scene of the return to Europe and abandonment
were really gripping and I must admit I stayed up all one night reading it to the end. What a tale!
. . . it was very hard for me to stop reading every night. I am a slow reader of English, but finished in four days. I
was deeply absorbed, and am very grateful to you for giving me a rare opportunity to encounter such a book. . . .
It was an exciting read, in doubt about the outcome. It was hard to put it down before finding out what happens next.
I guess it was the child Nora's energy and positive attitude that moved it along and created intense interest --
Dale. North Carolina
...I loved [Nora's] book, not because it was so literary but because it really told the family's story about the five years
of extreme hardship in Russia during ... the revolution. Also a lovely story about early New York.
... "A great deal of talent is lost in this world for want of a little courage," said Sydney Smith, an
English essayist and clergyman ... [I'm glad you had the courage to write your memoir.] I really had fallen into the web of
suspense you so skillfully were weaving...Your story was definitely worth preserving in print...[it] was a real page turner!
...believable, readable & thoroughly engrossing.
