Abstract: The glory of this fine book is Templeton’s own eloquent voice — lucid, assured, compassionate. Templeton is deeply informed across all the manifold layers of her story. She has a sensitive capacity to understand and interpret the voices of the generations of migrants, whose lives and experience might so easily have been rendered null and void by neglect, indifference, the loss of vital records or the lack of someone prepared to break new ground.
