Can't Wait Wednesday: The Next Ship Home

Can't Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!


The Next Ship Home by Heather Webb 

Pub. Date: February 8, 2022

Goodreads says, "Ellis Island, 1902: Two women band together to hold America to its promise: "Give me your tired, your poor..."  Ellis Island, 1902. Francesca arrives on the shores of America, her sights set on a better life than the one she left in Italy. That same day, aspiring linguist Alma reports to her first day of work at the immigrant processing center. Ellis, though, is not the refuge it first appears thanks to President Roosevelt's attempts to deter crime. Francesca and Alma will have to rely on each other to escape its corruption and claim the American dreams they were promised.  A thoughtful historical inspired by true events, this novel probes America's history of prejudice and exclusion—when entry at Ellis Island promised a better life but often delivered something drastically different, immigrants needed strength, resilience, and friendship to fight for their futures."


I really have enjoyed Heather Webb's novels in the past and I am excited to check out this one about Ellis Island. I have family members that have gone through Ellis Island, so I am really intrigued. What do you guys think?
