When Jessie Came Across the Sea

Amazon.com Rating:
When a young girl from a poor eastern European village learns that she must leave her beloved grandmother for a new life - and a new love - in America, they both feel that their hearts will break. The sure and inspired narrative by award-winning author Amy Hest is paired with paintings by P.J. Lynch that glow with warmth and carefully observed detail, creating an unforgettable tribute to the immigrant experience.

"Hest simply and faithfully holds a mirror to the milestone event for millions of turn-of-the-century immigrants." -- Publisher's Weekly
