    One thought on “Bitter Passage”

    1. This is an astonishing debut novel about a prosperous middle class immigrant family from Germany who should have been happy in their new world. Frida Reinhardt is eager to settle in, learn English and raise her family in New York. But not long after they arrive, Hermann, her driving, ambitious husband--lured by the promise of gold in the west--forces the family to cross the country with him. Elizabeth Buechner Morris has created a heart-rending, well-researched account of how Hermann's well-mean [...]

    2. I could not put this book down. The characters came alive by the author's acute, interesting studies of the family members and interpersonal relationships within the one another. The books language and observations were so descriptive it made feel like I was on the journey with them. All characters became alive and I could not wait to see how they each developed with age and experience. I do not want to give away the ending, as to say it was done with expertise and was quite a surprise. A beauti [...]

    3. Well researched but ultimately rather boring book. I think maybe she covered too much ground - she even threw in a slave auction in Missouri - so nothing really came alive.

    4. History comes to lifeI know the author of this novel but unless I thought it was good, I wouldn't review it. OK, it might not be Tolstoy or Balzac, the general plot might be simple, but BITTER PASSAGE will move you regardless. What impressed me the most about the book---an epic tale of migration to the USA from Europe--is the amount of detailed research the author must have done. While we all learned about pioneers and the gold rush of '49 in school, this tale will fill in those yawning gaps con [...]

    5. Well written, heart wrenching story a woman who's life is a series of good-byes, set against the back-drop of a family immigrating from Germany and then setting off to California in search of gold.To each her/his own, but I found the slave auction bit interesting. I do love history, but mostly I found the main character nuanced and infinitely sympathetic.
