New reading What Hath God Wrought
This book won the Pulizer Prize for History in 2008.
I'm writing the second novel where my protagonist Annie Power, has arrived in New York in 1846. I want to research the America she has emigrated to in her quest to escape the Irish Famine.
It interests me to research the situation of emigrants at that time as America had mamy immigrants from all over Europe.
I'm also researching Slavery in New York at that time.
I will come back and update this post when I find out more.
