Yours Faithfully, Florence Burke: An Irish Immigrant Story by Ellen B. Alden

Irish immigrant Florence Burke has lived in Massachusetts for more than a decade but he??s still a tenant farmer and his family lives in near-poverty. He came to America for a better life, but many people in his town don??t like or trust the Irish. Florence recognizes that owning land is the path to prosperity, but he can??t secure a loan without equity.

An opportunity arises that could make his dreams come true, but it involves great personal risk to both himself and his family. He must determine if the reward is worth the risk and if his young wife Ellen will forgive his rash decision.

He recalls his past in Ireland, the potato famine, the disease, the starvation-- and how he followed his love Ellen to America to make her his wife. He vowed that they would never part again, but now he finds that even his words are hollow.

Yours Faithfully, Florence Burke is based on nineteen original letters from my great, great grandfather to his wife and children. It is a novel of enduring faith, bravery and the indestructible bond of family.

Your feet will bring you to where your heart is- Irish Proverb”
