Æ Orchard Street, Dawn ¼ Download by Ö Joseph O'Connor Lovely written novella capturing a time and period we mostly have forgotten about The depictions of the families and the people of the time comes across as being so true and so real that you can almost smell the air and feel the dirt beneath their boots.
This was a well written portrait of an immigrant family in America in the 19th century Parts of the story were very moving While I know it is meant to be a short story, I do feel the story was too rushed I didn t need to read a novel of the family s whole life, but I do think there were parts that could have been better fleshed out A nice free read.

This was a very short read It is about a couple who have come from overseas to live in the 1800 s They have the basic struggles of immigrated people and find that the family that they wanted so bad might not be able to happen.
Heartbreaking and sad but beautifully written.
