'I loved this book. A stunning exploration of hope and desire, fear and control, this story is full of heart and heartbreak.’ - Ashley Hay, author of The Railwayman’s Wife

“This well-written novel deftly melds history with family drama." - The Australian

"A compelling novel about the bruises inflicted by fate and by ourselves, and the blessings to be found in resilience, determination, and love." Debra Adelaide, author of The Household Guide to Dying

"Two women, two generations, two countries, two journeys. Eleanor Limprecht gracefully navigates the crosscurrents of history and creates vibrant characters from the extraordinary true experiences of Australian war brides. Sarah and Hannah’s urgent search for love and wholeness moved me in both senses: they touched my heart and I still feel I am churning across the Pacific with them. A deeply satisfying novel." - Susan Wyndham, literary editor of The Sydney Morning Herald

"Overall, The Passengers is an exceptionally good read. There were times when Eleanor Limprecht had me spellbound by her beautiful prose. I loved her descriptions of America through Sarah’s fresh Australian gaze, particularly all the cultural differences." Theresa Smith Writes

"The Passengers is part historical fiction, part family drama, with two engaging female leads with vastly different experiences and lives on a journey to connect the present with the past and reconnect with family and homelands." The Book Muse
