Trish 5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, yet endearing! Reviewed in the United States on May 3, 2021

This is an enjoyable story about the life of a young woman who leaves behind all that she knows to venture into a new world in hopes of making a better life for her children.

  1. Sounds like a great read. I love a strong female protagonist. Certainly, making the trek to America from Europe as a woman would have been tough during that era.

  2. I also have to say that the book makes me curious. It is always interesting to see such a situation, of which you know parts of it yourself, treated in the context of a novel. Plus, novels always end well. 😉 Thank you for the nice review, and Congratulations to the author. Michael
