Sofia's Tune by Cindy Thomson - Review of the third book in the Ellis Island series

(copied from
In Sofia's Tune, we meet Sofia Falcone, a young woman who has been living in New York only a short time when she is stunned to discover a family secret, one that soon sends her beloved mother into a mental institution. Scrambling to keep her job and care for her mother, Sofia is convinced confronting the past will heal all wounds, but her old world Italian family wants to keep the past in the past.

During this time, she encounters Antonio, a Vaudeville pianist with a street-smart dog, seeking to discover why his father was mysteriously killed. Their crossed paths uncover a frightening underworld in Little Italy. Bringing the truth to light may cost Sofia's mother's sanity, Antonio's career, and the livelihoods of countless immigrants. Change is on the horizon, but it may not bring what they expect.

I think this has been the best book in the series, and oh what sad stories! I was pulled into this book right from the beginning. Cindy did a wonderful job and if you are not touched by the lives of Sofia and Antonio, especially Sofia's, then I don't know what will pull at your heartstrings. Grab a copy and get ready for a very good story with a touch of mystery to it.
