Book Review - "Grace's Pictures"

"Grace's Pictures" is an Ellis Island Novel written by Cindy Thomson and it is a book that will inspire you and transport you to the bustling streets of New York City in the early 1900's.  Grace is trying to find a way to earn money in order to bring her mother to America from Ireland.  However, things do not go as planned and Grace is not sure whom to trust and put her faith in.  Grace's camera may be a tool that could help and yet also harm her as Grace has a run-in with a gang.  This book is an exciting and also touching read that immediately drew me into the story and also in Grace's life and world.  The cover is beautiful on this book and sparked my interest before even reading what the book was about.  The author writes in such a style that holds the reader's attention, and the writing is filled with vivid imagery and historical details.  I am looking forward to reading more in these series!
