Editorial Reviews

Review

“A moving historic tribute.” ―New York Post

"An inspiring and resonant story." ―National Catholic Reporter

"Puleo (American Treasures, 2016) makes this history compelling, and tells further American aid stories across the decades through the Berlin Airlift of 1948. Puleo’s deep research is evident in an erudite bibliographic essay." ―Booklist (starred review)

"An uplifting historical account of humanitarianism with lessons in this increasingly isolationist time." ―Kirkus Reviews

"Voyage of Mercy is a fascinating and moving tale of America as we wish it would always be―kind, generous, and humane to people who are in dire need of help, wherever they may live. Puleo is a master storyteller who seamlessly weaves together the personal and the political in this enthralling narrative of the United States' philanthropic and humanitarian roots. In today's fractious and divisive world, this book is a tonic to the soul, and a potent reminder that we are at our best when we follow the 'better angels of our nature'." ―Eric Jay Dolin, author of Black Flags, Blue Waters and Leviathan

"Voyage of Mercy is why we read. It's history as it should be written. It reads like a terrific, page-turning novel, with characters who live and breathe and struggle and yearn, with grand dramatic moments, with settings so vividly described in a world so impeccably researched that you think you're there, with powerful themes that will resonate long after you've finished reading. It's Stephen Puleo's best book and a voyage that every reader should take." ―William Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Back Bay and Bound for Gold
