CITY OF HOPE
An Irish immigrant, Ellie, returns to New York city after her husband dies. Kerrigan gives Ellie some depth with Ellie's strength, independence, and entrepreneurship in the 1930s. I did find some parts slow moving but overall, the story is good. Following Ellie through her trials and tribulations was enough to keep my interest. Kerrigan does describe small town Ireland and depression era New York City well.
