Two young women from Ireland had differing tales that eventually caused them to emigrate from Ireland, but they were woven together with poverty and calamity in their native land. Victoria was one of the young women, and her story was repulsive to say the least. Her father, a poor Irish man living on a land baron’s estate was conscripted during the potato famine to identify his peers, friends and neighbors to the persons who eventually evicted them due to non-payment of rent. This was horrifying; nobody could afford to pay, yet the miserly baron had them removed as Victoria’s father watched. Nasty business. Her father was eventually murdered, and she was an outcast. Off she went to America to escape and be re-invented. This is the story of how these two women met on the Atlantic crossing, became good friends, got robbed, beaten and taken advantage of in their new environs, New York City. They became seamstresses working almost as slaves until they decided to go into business for themselves. They succeed, but not without major trials. A Jewish merchant who manufactured materials gave them encouragement, credit, and any other help he could to help them due to their industriousness and honesty. The tale winds around some scoundrels that continue to try to undermine this new business owner, and the lines are drawn between good and evil people in New York. An engaging story that has many historical truths in it; it describes what courage and integrity is all about both the positive side of the ledger as well as the negative side of the human ledger.
Now I can take all my gear with me in one of my own bags. Just took it in a duffle bag to Alaska. I could leave it in our room and just take the needed camera stuff with me for the day, knowing that when I needed more it was protected in the room.
Brandy Rivers' latest installment in the others of edenton series does not disappoint. It is full of action, both steamy and otherwise. The plot never slows down and it keeps you interested from first page to last. My favorite part about this book in particular is the redemption story line. I love that love always gets a second chance.
