Description

To save her brother Stefan's life, Marisia and her family must leave their home in Poland and sail to America, where they have heard people are free to do as they choose and the streets are paved with gold. After a rough ocean passage to the New World, Marisia and Stefan must face the harsh reality of immigrant life in New York, searching for work and struggling to find a safe place to live. But Marisia has bigger dreams for herself-and a fiery spirit to help her make those dreams come true!

Professional reviews

"Readers young and old will be moved by the struggles of young immigrant Marisia, a resilient and likable character whose journey from Poland to New York bears similarities to that of so many newcomers to the United States at the turn of the century. Most compelling is the way in which Marisia's artistic talent and her need to draw as a matter of emotional survival are interwoven into the story. The writing is rich with historical detail, characters are lively and well developed, and the story--except for the very beginning--moves along at a good pace. Ruth Ann Phimister's sensitive narration captures the drama and suspense while bringing intimacy and immediacy to this story of life one hundred years ago. A good story with a memorable character; the educational aspect is an added value. E.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
