Product Description

The year is 1901, the literary sensation The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is taking New York City by storm, and everyone wonders where the next great book will come from. But to Annie Gallagher, stories are more than entertainment-they're a sweet reminder of her storyteller father. After his death, Annie fled Ireland for the land of dreams, finding work at Hawkins House.

But when a fellow boarder with something to hide is accused of misconduct and authorities threaten to shut down the boardinghouse, Annie fears she may lose her new friends, her housekeeping job . . . and her means of funding her dream: a memorial library to honor her father. Furthermore, the friendly postman shows a little too much interest in Annie-and in her father's unpublished stories. In fact, he suspects these tales may hold a grand secret.

Publisher's Description

The year is 1901, the literary sensation The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is taking New York City by storm, and everyone wonders where the next great book will come from. But to Annie Gallagher, stories are more than entertainment—they’re a sweet reminder of her storyteller father. After his death, Annie fled Ireland for the land of dreams, finding work at Hawkins House.

But when a fellow boarder with something to hide is accused of misconduct and authorities threaten to shut down the boardinghouse, Annie fears she may lose her new friends, her housekeeping job . . . and her means of funding her dream: a memorial library to honor her father. Furthermore, the friendly postman shows a little too much interest in Annie—and in her father’s unpublished stories. In fact, he suspects these tales may hold a grand secret.

Though the postman’s intentions seem pure, Annie wants to share her father’s stories on her own terms. Determined to prove herself, Annie must forge her own path to aid her friend and create the future she’s always envisioned . . . where dreams really do come true.

    This was another great book by Cindy Thomson. Loved it. The characters were great, even the ones you were not sure if you we're going to like. I thought this was going to be about the Wizard of Oz at first and was glad when that was just a small side story.the real story was much better. Can't wait for the next book. I received a free copy from Bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    This review was written for Annie's Stories - eBook.
    I was looking forward to reading this book as The Wizard of Oz was one of my Mom's favorite movies, mine growing up and my daughter loves everything 'Wizard of Oz' to this day. The story had a slow start for me, this seems to happen to me sometimes but by the time I get to the end I find it hard to put the book down because the storyline gets really interesting. That is what happened with this book, it ended up with me wanting to quickly find out what would happened and found it hard to put the book down. This is a good story that shows how authors (Annie's father in this case) can bring a person back to the faith they thought they had lost, as was the case with Annie and Stephen. I can recommend this book to others who like Christian and/or Historical Fiction.

    This review was written for Annie's Stories - eBook.
    This is the second book in the Ellis Island Series, taking place at the Hawkins House, the same boarding house as Graces Pictures (first book in the series.)

    Annie Gallagher is an Irish immigrant coming to the states with something she treasuresthe childrens stories her father wrote for her. They represent her feelings of love, contentment, and most of all, home. Though she is reluctant to share them with others, they could provide all she is searching for.

    The main characters, Annie and Stephen, are so vivid, flawed, and well developed. I also loved the feel for the times this story provided. Its interesting to learn of the immigrants struggles, and even the little nuances of the publishing world in the early 1900s that only these types of stories provide for those who didnt experience them.

    With a fabulous setting, memorable characters, and references to the book, The Wizard of Oz, whats not to love? I recommend reading Graces Pictures first, but, even though some of the same characters from the first book are also in this one, this can be read as a stand-alone.

    Annies Stories by Cindy Thomson is a story about Annie, an Irish Immigrant, and also a story about those she lives with and deals with on an everyday occurrence. At first glance, the cover of this story makes you think you are in for a very whimsical tale. But just like the book that Annie is reading, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, this book has its dark and sinister parts and Annie needs to find the courage and heart to see her circumstances through. This book is full of secrets of all kinds, deals with some dark subject matter, and really opens up to what life might have been like for Immigrants such as Annie and her friends trying to start anew in America. I saw the early Post Office in a new light and sometimes wanted to shake Annies love interest due to his naivety and poor decisions. I always enjoy a book that can teach me something new about history that I did not know before and it was very neat to read about folks who enjoyed reading as much as I do. It was also interesting to see the sensation that The Wonderful Wizard of Oz had on the public during its time. I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.

    Annie's Dreams for Life in America

    Annies Stories is a charming tale of Annie, a recent arrival from Ireland. Her beloved father was a traveling storyteller who took his daughter with him on his travels across Ireland. They found a bed wherever they could and now he is dead. She has no one turn to and ends up in difficult circumstances until a kindly priest finds her and sends her to live in his sisters boarding house in New York City. All Annie has left of her father is his writing desk and some of his stories. But did her father have a part of his life that had been hidden from Annie?

    Stephen, the postman, is drawn to Annie. He longs for a family and to be the husband and father that he did not have. He and Annie share a love for books, so he hopes that something will develop for their future. In an effort to help Annie, Stephen loses her trust and possibly her heart. With things heating up among some of the residents of the boarding house, the situation becomes troubled. Can Stephen make up for his innocent mistake? Will Annie ever be able to establish her library for the poor?

    This is a lovely story, taking place at the beginning of the 20th century when many immigrants were arriving in New York City. They were often taken advantage of and frequently worked in difficult situations. This series is called an Ellis Island novel since the author is bringing to light some of their stories. Although this is the second book in this series, it can certainly be read as a stand alone book.
