Product Description

Voyaging across the sea to a new life in America, Jessie leaves behind her village home and her beloved Grandmother, to whom she entrusts a precious keepsake, hoping that one day they will be reunited. Set at the turn of the 19th century, this beautifully written and illustrated book tells the story of a young girl’s great journey. As Jessie travels from her small village to the hustle and bustle of New York City, her adventures mirror the true experiences of real-life migrants of that day and age.
