Dreams in the Golden Country, My First Book Reveiw!

 Title: Dreams in the golden country, the Diary of Zipporah Feldman, a Jewish immigrant girl

Blurb: 

          March 11, 1904 

I forgot to tell you that yesterday Boris said to me, “Well, Zippy, maybe some play is coming up will need children and you can audition.” I said, “From your mouth to God’s ears, Boris!” Now I can think of nothing else. I told Miriam last night in my bed my secret dreams of wanting to become an actress. She squeezed my hand. It was a squeeze that seemed to say we both have secret dreams, mine the theater and hers love. The she said, “What is it about this country that makes one  dream such big dreams?” I yawned sleepily and said, yes, I knew what she meant, and look at Tovah with her union dreams. There is something in the air here in America that does this to people.

Comments: I loved the story and Zipporah was so cute! It was very interesting to see America from the eye of an immigrant. I do wish that the author would explain the Jewish customs a little better, though. However, I did not really like Kathryn’s style of writing. I found a few grammar mistakes, too. Otherwise, I think it was a very good book, although the plot wasn’t very clear.
