Review "The Garment Maker's Daughter" by Hillary Adrienne Stern is a debut novel that takes place during the first half of the 20th century in New York. It is about immigrants about the history of the labor situation on these years. It is the second book in March that the primary and secondary characters are Jewish.
Stern's novel deals with a lot of themes that were and are essential even today. Issues like acceptance of immigrants regardless of their religion or the countries those people arrive. There is a matter of equality between women as well as the women's right to vote. Labor union's issues trying to improve working conditions are the backstories of the novel.
Yes, there are secrets, and there is a love triangle that, in my opinion, conducted in a way I have never read and enjoyed very much.
"The Garment Maker's Daughter" is a book about love and choices we make. The characters are realistic, which you see how their lives are affected because of their decisions.
Hillary Adrienne Stern writes in a way that you want to find out what will happen to Lena, Daniel, Jake, Sophie & Rachel.
I reduced a star because I felt the ending is a little bit chopped.
Hopefully, Ms. Stern will write more books because I know I will read whatever she writes.
I am delighted that I had the chance to find out about this book and got it for free through one of the mails I get for Kindle e-books deals even though I have this e-book for a couple of years unread.
If you are looking for historical fiction that doesn't take place properly on WWII but has other essential subjects, this book is for you. ( )

This is a well written book. Unfortunately it is basically a love story and love stories bore me to tears. There are interesting parts about how hard life was for immigrants working in the factories and how badly they were treated. A book worth reading if like that genre but sadly, not for me. ( )
