Taken from a "lonely hearts" column in a Brooklyn newspaper from turn of the last century, these letters show the loneliness and challenges immigrants faced coming to the U.S.

A lovely, little gem of a book that takes you into the hearts and minds of immigrants trying to assimilate into the new world.
