Editorial Reviews

Reviewer - Joy Nash
1945, Boston and California

Elizabeth Reilly's 'gift' - communicating with troubled ghosts - makes it difficult for her to form close relationships with the living. It felt safe to marry the one man she knew accepted her - a childhood best friend. But then World War II intervened, cutting her husband's life short. His ghost travels to Massachusetts for one last good-bye. Elizabeth resigns herself to a lonely life as a widow.

Then a chance encounter with a dying man sends Eliz

I enjoyed reading The Passenger. Paolo and Adriana's story is heartbreaking, but out of that tragedy comes the possibility of new love between Gio and Elizabeth. I recommend The Passenger to anyone looking for a touching romance with a splash of the paranormal mixed in.

    Good Read

    Elizabeth Reilly has finally accepted life with her "special" abilities. Will the man she loves accept them too?

    Elizabeth can communicate with the dead. Elizabeth considers her abilities more of a curse then a gift, and for most of her life, she blocked the abilities, hoping to live a normal life. However, when an old man named Paolo Clemente dies in her arms, she knows she has to help his spirit find peace. Paolo believed his wife and son to be dead, but Elizabeth discovers they are alive and well in California. Soon she finds herself in California on the Clemente vineyard run by Adriana and Gio, Paolo's wife and son.

    Not wanting Gio to think she's crazy, Elizabeth decides not to tell him that she can communicate with the spirit of his dead father. While she's not comfortable with lying, Elizabeth believes it's better if Gio thinks she knew his father when he was alive. However, Gio is still skeptical of Elizabeth's story. He suspects that Elizabeth might be running some sort of scam. Wanting to protect his mother, Gio demands that Elizabeth keep the reason for her visit a secret from Adriana until he decides the time is right. As Elizabeth and Gio spend more time together, the tension between them builds. Will they acknowledge their attraction before it's too late? What will Gio say when he learns about Elizabeth's abilities?

    Elizabeth is certainly a strong woman. Her ability to communicate with the dead has made her life very lonely. People instinctively shy away from her and her family. Rather than letting this defeat her, Elizabeth grew into the wonderful and caring woman who held a stranger's hand as he died. Another thing that I admire about Elizabeth is that she was unwilling to settle for just any man. She is determined that she will never be with a man who doesn't fully accept everything about her, including her ability to communicate with the dead. While she loves Gio, she is prepared to let him go if he can't handle the truth of her abilities.

    Gio is a man with a heart of stone. However, somewhere very deep in that stone is a soft spot. Gio believes that his father had abandoned him as a child. Then Elizabeth walks into his life and tells him differently. Not only is Gio extremely resistant to changing his long held view of his father, but he also resists his growing reaction to Elizabeth just as strongly. In an attempt to push her away, Gio is cruel at times, and it was very difficult for me to patiently wait for his stone heart to soften. However, once it does, he reveals himself to be a kind and caring man.

    I enjoyed reading The Passenger. Paolo and Adriana's story is heartbreaking, but out of that tragedy comes the possibility of new love between Gio and Elizabeth. I recommend The Passenger to anyone looking for a touching romance with a splash of the paranormal mixed in.

    A wonderful ride - very hard to put down

    This was given as a gift and both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A warm, thoughtful, delightful read...a tale that moves realistically albeit somewhat supernaturally along a carefully crafted path. It leaves the reader satisfied in a delicious way while anxious for another round. Hopefully Ms. Lesin will oblige her readers by continuing the tale as one is left with the feeling that the ¿gift¿ will keep giving.
