Reader Reviews on Goodreads:
*I rarely give a book a 5 star rating, but I did this one because I felt the characters were well developed, it drew you in as a real page turner with its multi-layered story, and it touched me in a profound way.
*The mystery is well-written and for readers who like animals, Lu is the best fictional dog I have had the pleasure of encountering in a long while.
*With so many stories entangled in the diversity in the shadows of The Statute of Liberty, Cindy Thomson masterfully threads more families together in another emotionally charged tale.
*The different factions among the immigrants, like the Italians, especially were fascinating.

In Sofia’s Tune, we meet Sofia Falcone, a young woman who has been living in New York only a short time when she is stunned to discover a family secret, one that soon sends her beloved mother into a mental institution. Scrambling to keep her job and care for her mother, Sofia is convinced confronting the past will heal all wounds, but her old world Italian family wants to keep the past in the past.
During this time, she encounters Antonio, a Vaudeville pianist with a street-smart dog, seeking to discover why his father was mysteriously killed. Their crossed paths uncover a frightening underworld in Little Italy. Bringing the truth to light may cost Sofia’s mother’s sanity, Antonio’s career, and the livelihoods of countless immigrants. Change is on the horizon, but it may not bring what they expect.
