  "Strangers" by FriendshipSisters (see profile) 04/07/11

Nice story, at times felt as though there were too many details and yet at times felt as though I visulalize the sights and sounds of Opi, the voyage and a new America. Very well reasearched historical fiction. It was tragic to think of what immigrants went through when they came to America looking for a better life.

We enjoyed the story although the beginning was slow. Her journey to America was eventful and showed the courage that she needed and how to manage the problems she encountered. The second half of the book surprised us until we realized the author's background. Very good discussion, - as each of us remembered a particular part, we continued to remember more.
