The Forgotten Girl by Heather Chapman (Review)

It is 1906, and sixteen-year-old Stella's life in Durliosy, Poland, is bleak. Her only hope of surviving is to travel to America, a land of freedom and opportunity, and reunite with her brother in Baltimore. There she'll find new challenges, and perhaps, if she can put her painful past behind her, a new chance for love and lasting happiness.


A captivating story from the first page! The Forgotten Girl is the story of Stella, a young woman from Poland, whose life has been rough to say the least. I felt an immediate affinity for Stella and was rooting for her to succeed. From start to finish this book was great and is one I'd highly recommend, especially to those looking for books about life of early immigrants.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.

Being the youngest of four sisters (and one very tolerant older brother), Heather grew up on a steady diet of chocolate, Anne of Green Gables, Audrey Hepburn, Jane Austen, and the other staples of female moviedom. These stories inspired Heather to begin writing at an early age. After meeting and marrying her husband Mark, Heather graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University and finally settled down in a small farming community in southeastern Idaho with her husband and four children. In her spare time, Heather enjoys time spent with family, volleyball, piano, the outdoors, and almost anything creative.
