-"A thought-provoking family saga set in New York in the 1900s, which is so good that it will pull you into its deepest core of pain, love and grief! ... the book is devastatingly beautiful!" -BookStopCorner
-"Told by two with the eye and instinct of keen storytellers who know exactly when to divulge, when to pause and hold onto secrets and twists. Readers will be exhausted and inspired from the journey, and wouldn't have it any other way!"

-My Reading Addiction Reviews by Cami Hemlsey
"I loved the story. I loved the tone and the way it sounded just like someone telling their family story to their children. It is a lovely book. I especially enjoyed how the Epilogue tied up loose ends and even revealed a few family secrets."
"A moving family saga with an incredible and entirely unexpected twist, Forty Years in a Day is a pleasantly emotional story. The format may have left me wanting, but the plot is one of those most creative I’ve ever encountered, debut or otherwise."
"The authors depict the daily existence within the confines of poverty and menial job opportunities quite well. The forty-year time period is depicted with excellent word-imagery, and with sensitivity to the family situations of assimilation and identity."
"Coming across a good read is a blessing to every reader, and this book is undoubtedly one. I rate this book five out of five stars, as it was an exhilarating, beautiful, and captivating read.”
"Forty Years In A Day so brilliantly illuminates the hardships and tribulations of a family coming to America in the 1900's. "
