I am still working on my book about the ladies deciding to sew in tumultuous times for the people of Afghanistan after the invasion of the Taliban.

Another book I want to delve into is one, which I believe that was on the list from this site, is "Until We Reach Home" by Lynn Austin, about three women emigrating from Sweden in 1897 to Chicago, Illinois.

This story is very appealing to me as I am reseaching my Polish Grandpa who came to the United States around the same time.  We from the family know a lot about him once he got here, but what port he came through:  Ellis Island or Baltimore is a mystery to us.

This journey I am on has so far been a wonderful one, meeting many people that want to aid me in my quest and finding out what could have been the reasons he came here, traveling on a ship before the 1900s, and what life was like in Poland before the Russians took over.

Just fascinating things to read about the people I care so much about with compassion for their plight of being oppressed:  their courage, giving up living in the homeland, the reasons for coming or fleeing Eastern Europe....so parallel to what is going on currently.

Yes it was on the list one year and it was a very good book.
