Product Description

From Booklist

Gr. 6-9. A continuation of the story of the three immigrant girls who met aboard ship in Land of Hope , this book opens with their arrival in America in the early 1900s. Rebekah and her Russian family stay in New York. Rosie, from Ireland, travels with Kirsten's Swedish family as far as Chicago, where she's met by her older brother. Kirsten and her family go on to Minnesota. Although Rosie is happy to be reunited with her father and brothers and enjoys her new job as a salesperson in a dry-goods store, she still has problems adjusting to her new life: she misses her mother and sisters still in Ireland; her father, lonely and unhappy, spends his evenings in the local tavern; one brother is involved in shady city politics; the other, hurt at work, is unemployed. When further tragedies strike, it's up to Rosie to find the solution. With a nice blend of historical fact and involving plot strands, the latest in Nixon's Ellis Island trilogy gives modern readers an absorbing glimpse of America's past. Candace Smith

From the Publisher

Rose Carney, a young girl from Ireland, befriends Rebecca, from Russia, and Kristen, from Sweden, during the long journey to America. They part ways at Ellis Island and Rose continues onto a new life in Chicago. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I LOVED this book! I just wish that it didn't end without anything about her little sisters. For me, it ended too abruptly.

I read this series as a young girl and I am now buying them for my sister who is ten years my junior. Books are well written and informative. It's a great way for girls to be introduced to American History!
