They were five young penniless people who came to America at the turn of the century–a land of shining hope and breathtaking challenge. They came to fulfill a glowing promise and take the fearful gamble of a new life in a land where anything was possible.
Meticulous research is one of Stewart’s hallmarks, and here he draws us into the history of the early 1900’s with lively overviews of Our Crowd, vaudeville, the millionaires of Newport, the rising workers’ unions, the hot spots of Harlem–catching perfectly the flavor of the times. Ellis Island is an epic novel teeming with life and drama when the century, and America, were young.
