Publisher's Summary

Driven from Ireland during the potato famine, Protestant Victoria MacPherson and Catholic Maeve O'Reilly find themselves thrown together aboard a Manhattan-bound ship. After a treacherous journey, they arrive in New York City in 1851, with only a small purse of silver and the promise that Maeve's brother will find them there. But when he doesn't show, the girls are quickly conned out of their savings by a smooth-talking scam artist, leaving the two destitute in the tenements of Lower Manhattan.

As the women work their way from seamstresses earning pennies a day to proprietresses starting their own shop, their success is endangered by the city's corruption and a disgraceful secret that Victoria has been keeping from Maeve. Jealous rivals, religious prejudice, and the shocking revelation of Victoria's shameful past threaten to break their bond and reduce the women to rags. But will their strength, courage, and spirit be enough to help them survive and thrive once again?

    Story
    "Loved it!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Victoria Crossing to be better than the print version?

    Yes... I loved the narrator's Irish accent, which I would not have been able to drum up in my own mind if reading this.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Victoria's perseverance and strength of character.


    What about Rosemary Benson’s performance did you like?

    Her ability to do a wonderful Irish accent, but also her "male voices" were believable and didn't sound "sleazy" (like some female narrators make their masculine voices sound like). She did a fantastic job!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The American Dream is available to all who are willing to work hard.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this story and the narration. I got totally lost in it.
