An early review for the book
Trish 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. Follow her through her hardships and successes as she struggles to support her family and fulfill a promise she made to her dying husband.
