"To See the Stars is destined to become a Canadian classic. Jan Andrews has written yet another moving story that is at once intimate and grand. It is a book that will find a home in the nooks and crannies of the reader's mind. Jan's work is a never-ending gift to the rest of us."
~ Deborah Ellis, author of The Breadwinner and Looking for X.
"Jan Andrews' To See the Stars powerfully evokes the voice of Edie Murphy, a young girl from a Newfoundland outport whose journey brings her from her isolated fishing village to the bustling streets and factories of New York City. The world of the early 20th century - in New York, in St. John's, and in the tiny village of Attorney - is beautifully depicted,and Edie emerges as a resilient and engaging heroine."
~ Trudy Morgan Cole, author of By the Rivers of Brooklyn and Most Anything You Please.
