"We had a terrific presentation from Jeff Gorney on his book Mysterious Places. Great book and great program"
Syracuse Post-Standard/Empire Magazine: CNY Page-Turners
"When Jeffrey Gorney was a boy, his grandmother's stories all started the same way: 'When I was a little girl in Romania.' Her stories are part of what led the Syracuse writer to book his first trip to Romania in 1994. This book follows his decades-long journey to uncover his family's genealogy there."

"A self-published author I follow is Kseola Anske. Her books took months to write/publish, and she wrote about her struggles. A few local authors, like Jeffrey Gorney (Mysterious Places).fit this well."
***** Wonderful writer and gifted storyteller, Gorney weaves together childhood memories and hushed references to relatives he never knew and takes us on a fascinating voyage to find out who they were and what became of them in Romania.
*****A must read! Treat yourself to Jeffrey Gorney's lush prose as he meanders through his Romanian past searching for family stories and secrets. What a journey!
*****One of the finest books I've ever read! A beautifully constructed, researched and written book. I found it very moving, even heartbreaking in places.
***** Fantastic read on family and life Outstanding writer. A powerful book with powerful life lessons. I gained a greater appreciation of the import and meaning of preserving family history.
***** Don't miss this one I first became aware of the book when the author spoke at a genealogy conference. From the moment i started i knew this would be a treasure. Warm, descriptive and enjoyable, beautifully written."
***** Take this journey of discovery Should be read by anyone who cares and wonders about the meaning of family. Gorney brings people and places to life in distinctive and vivid ways. Like all great memoirs, this speaks to any reader regardless of background.
**** Wonderful family stories Lush, elegant, simple prose throughout. A delightful story that transcends the memoir genre. I received a copy of this book as a gift.
