When We Were Strangers. Loved it.
This book is about an Italian woman who comes to the US, in the late 19th century via boat. She arrives in Cleveland to meet her cousin, but when she can't find him, she must survive on her own. I loved hearing the story about how she fought to get where she was, the people she met along the way, and how she found the confidence to believe in herself and move forward with life.
She moves through the US and eventually comes to San Francisco, which was fun to read about. She talks about the different neighborhoods and how a friend "works for Mr. Levi on Battery St". Well, Levi's corporate is still on Battery St here in SF! Highly recommend both of these books!
The next book I'm going to start today is....The Violets of March. Has great reviews on Amazon! The only bad thing about the Kindle is that I think my book spending is going to increase about 75% this year. haha
