Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you liked Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, you’re going to love Songs of Willow Frost. . . . tender, powerful, and deeply satisfying.”—Lisa Genova
 
“[A] poignant tale of lost and found love.”—Tampa Bay Times
 
“Arresting . . . [with] the kind of ending readers always hope for, but seldom get.”—The Dallas Morning News
 
“[An] achingly tender story . . . a tale of nuance and emotion.”The Providence Journal
 
“Ford crafts [a] beautiful, tender tale of love transcending the sins people perpetrate on one another and shows how the strength of our primal relationships is the best part of our human nature.”—Great Falls Tribune
 
“Remarkable . . . likely to appeal to readers who enjoy the multi-generational novels of Amy Tan.”—Bookreporter
 
“Jamie Ford is a first-rate novelist, and with Songs of Willow Frost he takes a great leap forward and demonstrates the uncanny ability to move me to tears.”—Pat Conroy
 
“With vivid detail, Jamie Ford brings to life Seattle’s Chinatown during the Depression and chronicles the high price those desperate times exacted from an orphaned boy and the woman he believes is his mother. Songs of Willow Frost is about innocence and the loss of it, about longing, about the power of remembered love.”—Nancy Horan, author of Loving Frank
 
“Ford’s boundless compassion for the human spirit, in all its strengths and weaknesses, makes him one of our most unique and compelling storytellers.”—Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
 
“A beautiful novel . . . William’s journey is one you’ll savor, and then think about long after the book is closed.”—Susan Wiggs, author of The Apple Orchard
 
“One of those rare books that move right into your heart and stay there . . . a delight to read [that is] destined to become a book-club favorite.”—Anne Fortier, author of Juliet
 
“Characters so full of passion and courage that we cannot help but follow them into the pages of history.”—Jean Kwok, author of Girl in Translation
 
“Ford weaves another rich tapestry of history and family drama in this cliff-hanging tale. . . . Hope and fate, laughs and tears: Songs of Willow Frost has it all.”—Ivan Doig, author of The Bartender’s Tale

From the Publisher

“Arresting . . . You can’t blame Willow for weeping, and you will likely weep along with her as you come to understand how she made the choices she did. . . . [Songs of Willow Frost has] the kind of ending readers always hope for, but seldom get.”The Dallas Morning News
 
“A story of determination and resourcefulness, and of finding the right family . . . Jamie Ford’s new novel, Songs of Willow Frost, is set during the 1930s, the era of the Great Depression and the explosive growth of the movie industry. Both play a part in the book’s poignant tale of lost and found love that reads like a heart-on-its-sleeve plot for one of the black-and-white films of the day.”Tampa Bay Times
 
“I could not turn away from the haunting story or the stunning historical details that bring Depression-era Seattle to cinematic life. Ford’s boundless compassion for the human spirit, in all its strengths and weaknesses, makes him one of our most unique and compelling storytellers.”—Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
 
“A tender, deeply felt novel . . . Songs of Willow Frost ultimately yields redemption, hope and plentiful fodder for book club conversations. Ford’s fans will fall in love all over again. . . . Sure to be another book club hit.”Shelf Awareness
 
“Ford is a first-rate novelist whose first book, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, was a joy to read. With his new book, he takes a great leap forward and has the uncanny ability to move me to tears.”—Pat Conroy, author of South of Broad
 
“[A] forthright, affecting second novel . . . a fine-textured study of human loss and, finally, triumph.”Library Journal
 
“Handily lives up to the promise of its much-praised predecessor (and Ford’s debut), Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet . . . The urgency of childhood, the heart-wrenching decisions parents must make, and the trials of poverty give this novel a solid emotional footing.”Publishers Weekly
