I love this novel. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves seeing the world and our history how it truly is/was and not as the Hollywood version we pretend it is/was.
Tower of Tears takes you on an emotional roller coaster as it explores the lives of an Irish family who has migrated to America. The novel focuses mainly on Jane, a timid, wonderful, loving woman who travels to America with her young son at the behest of her husband and to fulfill her mother’s final wish that she go to America to find a better life. Jane’s husband and brother follow nearly two years later, but unfortunately, by then, life in the new world and life without his wife have irrevocably changed the once happy couple.
This the story holds nothing back. Ms D’Ettore explores the racial and religious prejudices of the 1800s, prejudices that are still prominent today. It also explores gender roles and doesn’t hold back when it comes to the realities of the suffering many women endured in a time when they were seen as mere property and little more. This novel is raw and real. You will laugh, you will cringe in horror, and you will cry, but you will also grow to love this family and their undying devotion to each other.
I can’t wait to read more of Ms D’Ettore’s work and the next books in this series.

I finished reading Breed of Innocence last night. This is a great read, but it does have a more than a few typos, mostly missing words. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15735201-breed-of-innocence?ac=1
I read Don't Drink and Hex last night. This is a very short, funny, sexy, read. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23348622-don-t-drink-and-hex?from_search=true
