The Gift

Review for "The Gift" - Reading to Distraction

{WANT TO READ} Nora Webster by Colm Tóibín - a book I've been meaning to read. Brooklyn was one of my favourite reads in 2015! #MMDchallenge #MMDreading


Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Thanks to @SheReads BookClub I received a copy of Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. Molly, a troubled teen, uncovers an older woman, Vivan's, past while completing her community service hours. But this story is more unique because the background is the real life time in history when orphans were taken on trains to be distributed to new families. . . many times as indentured servants. I could not put this book down!

Richard Scarry's Busy, Busy World. I loved this book. I forgot the Irish pig hitching a ride on top of the bus.

White Cargo: The Forgotten History of Britain's White Slaves in America.....Irish slave trade in the New World....the Irish were the first slaves in the New World , because England wanted to be rid of them. At one point the Irish population dropped from 1,500,000 to 600,000 due to the English...they were bitterly hated here in the New World too because of their religion-Catholic.
