Where do I go, is the sequel to Sown in Tears and follows the story of Leah Peretz and her family in New York. Centred around the Jewish community, the story tells of the struggles encountered by new immigrants to survive, to keep their faith, and to gain a sense of belonging in a land that often feels alien. I particularly liked the novel's emphasis on women's equality and the industrial action taken by female factory workers, a topic that seems as pertinent today as it was in 1908. This novel ...more

Where Do I Go is a fabulous follow up to Beverly Magid’s Sown in Tears. I enjoyed this one so much more. I loved the strength that Leah had and admired her. I found it intriguing getting a glimpse of what life was like for those living in that section of New York City in 1908. It must have been horrific for all, including children, during those times.
I highly recommend Where Do I Go. I just could not put it down until I was finished. I give it 5 plus stars.
I received this book from the author.
