Despair. Hope. Love. Murder. Betrayal. Mystery. Blackmail. Romance.

In 1820, a young woman embarks on a journey for a better life in America. She brings with her a three year old son, and plans to live with relatives she has never met in Philadelphia. Her loving husband remains in Ireland, taking in boarders and working the farm to save money for his departure.

Along the way, Jane realizes she is pregnant, then soon is told she is expected to pay rent, and work in a factory. Her new boss begins to sexually assault her, convincing her that a pregnant Irish woman would never find work. She turns to her priest with no results. She is trapped!

bookreview
Tower of Tears by Rhoda D’Ettore is an interesting historical fiction novel. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began reading it. I liked the characters and the author did a nice job with the settings and descriptions. I found myself drawn into the story very early on and needing to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. I liked the different conflicts and dynamics in the story. I thought the story was intriguing and would definitely recommend it to others who enjoy historical fiction. My only issue was with the writing style – I had a bit of a difficult time with the way the story was divided up and how it went back and forth as well as the point of view of the story. That being said, I still enjoyed the story itself and was able to read it. I look forward to reading more about the McClusky family.
