Linda Owens4 Stars Out Of 5Experience the challenges of women immigrants...November 17, 2014Linda OwensQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3Although this book was not what I anticipated, it delivered a surprising historical, cross cultural collection of stories. It was not the expected northern European immigrant's story. It offered insight and credance to our varied backgrounds, portraying the real life struggles women faced when they came to America. As a history buff I was delighted to learn a great deal in each of the 9 short stories. Each American's legacy is unique and this book reinforces that concept. You can't help but personally absorb a part of each woman's struggle as they navigate the differences in culture they encountered.
In the era of e-books, the external presentation of this book alone draws you to open its' pages. The pages are of varying size and give the appearance of a personal journal. The painting on the cover further beckons you to explore the way our ancestors and neighbors came to this country.
A hearty thanks to each of the authors and the work of heart they contributed to this book. I appreciate the integration of living faith, including the plan of salvation, that is often lacking in christian stories. This collection is appropriate for young and old alike; each story is shared in a way that is neither prudish nor too explicit.
IreneUnited States5 Stars Out Of 5All Good StoriesNovember 8, 2013IreneUnited StatesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are multiple stories in the book and each one is unique. I enjoyed each story and thought they were all well written. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I really liked how the stories included a diverse group of women. I did not expect that when picking up the book. The women are all written with intriguing personalities and interesting story lines. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for some small stories that are enjoyable to read. You can choose to read one or a few and not spend too much time. I highly recommend this collection and hope each author continues to write other stories like these!
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
