REVIEW: Annie’s Stories by Cindy Thomson


Annie’s Stories (Ellis Island, #2)Annie has been plucked from a corrective “laundry” in her home of Ireland to work in America for Mrs. Hawkins.  An orphan, Annie longs to know her mother and finds comfort in the legacy left from her father.  Mrs. Hawkins, Annie’s benefactor, becomes key to helping Annie fill in the holes of her family history.  Set in New York City at the turn of the century, the book brings to life the immigrant neighborhoods and occupations held by so many 20th century, newly-Americans.
Thanks to Tyndale House for providing me a copy to review in my own words.
