I found this book to be a great read. Well written. I think the author did her homework well.
I would recommend this book. It brings to light the history of the Irish immigration to New York from 1854 to 1929 where more than two hundred thousand orphaned, abandoned, and homeless children were taken by trains to be adopted or placed with families in the mid west. Many ended up experiencing great trauma and they had no idea where they were going. Some were warmly welcomed by new families and towns. Others were beaten, mistreated, taunted or ignored. It is a good history lessons especially in light of what is going on in the U.S.A. with immigration policies separating families etc.
