Dicken creates a sweet romance that portrays the very real prejudices that Americans had toward immigrants during the 1900s. This book puts into perspective the struggles individuals must face when they leave their own homes and adjust to life in a new country and the different class systems of the time. Our main characters will struggle to overcome the obstacles put in their way, not only from their families but from society as well. With well-written characters and descriptive scenes, the readers will get a clear mental picture, as well as feel many deep emotions.
