What People Are Saying About Love and Other Consolation Prizes

 "Ford casts this complex love story against the backdrop of the little-known history of Chinese and Japanese orphans, who found slavery and indentured servitude rather than opportunity in America."  - Kirkus reviews, summer 2017

“An evocative, heartfelt, beautifully crafted story that shines a light on a fascinating, tragic bit of forgotten history, this is Jamie Ford at his storytelling best.” - Kristin Hannah, author of The Nightingale

“Heartbreaking, wondrous, triumphant.”- Ken Liu, author of The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories

 "This novel crafts an excellent blend of genres and devices that I love together: historical fiction, a love story with a hint of tragedy, and characters I can invest in. A must-read!"- Corey, BPL Librarian
