? This is a complex and ambitious first novel. Lawson skilfully interweaves the narratives of present and past, exploring the concerns of each on many levels. The examination of racism and greed in B.C.'s early days is well integrated into the narrative. - Quill and Quire, starred review

Lawson successfully combines a very real sense of period, a vivid portrait of the lives of the Chinese workers who built the railway, and an exciting adventure. - Vancouver Sun

Julie Lawson has written a story so well grounded in real-life Victoria, B.C., now and in 1881, that the fantasy of time travel between our time and the past seems natural and necessary. White Jade Tiger is successful, both at telling a gripping story and finishing it in a satisfying, believable way. - Victoria Times-Colonist

White Jade Tiger opens up a window onto another world, and allows recognition of the riches inherent in another culture. - Kathleen Bailey

Lawson’s considerable ability to bring her characters to life, and the adept use of dialogue and description, make this a highly recommended book. - Joyce L. White
