"...In The Passenger, Joie Lesin weaves an intricate and emotional tale of loss and love, tragedy and hope. I enjoyed this book immensely! I turned the last page with a satisfied sigh.

~Joy Nash, USA Today Best-Selling Author of The Grail King and Immortals: The Awakening

Praise & Reviews

"The 1940's is portrayed so vividly that the time and place become characters of their own. I could see the clothing, hear the music and feel the scratchy car upholstery. It is a ghost story, a story of love and loss that bridges the gap between the living and the dead."

~Romance Reader at Heart

"Paolo and Adriana's story is heartbreaking, but out of that tragedy comes the possibility of new love between Gio and Elizabeth. I recommend The Passenger to anyone looking for a touching romance with a splash of paranormal mixed in."
