Bread and Dreams: A Novel.
Mina, a young Irish immigrant, disembarks from an English ship with her protector, the master chef Mr. Serle, and enters New York City seeking work and her lost brother. The book is filled with marvelously drawn characters and vivid images.
Mina: A Novel.
"The suspenseful, episodic structure of their [Mina’s and Mr. Serle's] unfolding tales, as well as the solemn formality of their narrative voices, is evocative of the period, as are myriad vivid details about everything from housekeeping to sea travel to religious and social discord in the mid-19th century. Even the melodramatic plot complications are based in historic fact and are true to the spirit of the Victorian novel." Amanda Heller for The Boston Globe
