This is a great story, well-told. If it was a "real" book, I would call it a page-turner. The writer certainly keeps the reader's attention and makes you want to keep reading to find out what happens next. That said, I have some quibbles with some sloppy historical references, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars. For example, when Moskowitz is "wooing" Batya, he laments about how American women are spoiled. In the 1880's, he would have talked about American GIRLS, not American WOMEN. He is talking to a 14-year-old! When Batya gets sight of the busy port in Buenos Aires, she sees cranes. Really? in the 1880's? Work in the ports at that time would have been done by human laborers and/or mules or horses. Cranes would not be ubiquitous in a port until many decades later.
The narrator does a good job of using different voices for different characters. However, some of the accents sound more like an Irish brogue than an Eastern European voice.
