Family: the word is both sweet and bitter. We all have one; it is our common denominator. We're all linked by birth to at least two others, and we spend our lives running to and running from these connections.

Review by: Mabrie Ormes on Feb. 03, 2011 : (no rating)
Mr. Stanton's storytelling genius is evident the moment one picks up this book. He takes us instantly into the scene of a field being worked by migrants. His characters are vibrant and compelling. On the other hand, his writing is in sore need of editing. He uses a lot of colloquial language when he is not engaged in evoking a character's speech. In this way he loses important contrasts between the narrator's voice and the voices of his characters. This is a good read because of the intimate pictures it gives of certain ethnic worlds. It could be a much better read if the author would welcome the help of a good editor to bring his style up to the speed of his storytelling capabilities.

Review by: P. Rupert on Jan. 15, 2011 : (no rating)
The Migrant, by Nicholas Stanton is a tour de force of fate coincidence and choice- all human dilemmas brought to light in this richly woven tale of family, forgiveness and futility. It is ultimately a refreshing read laced with romance adventure and drama, and bound tightly within the realms of eloquent prose. I highly recommend "The Migrant" to all!
