by Heather Webb

Inspired by true events, The Next Ship Home tells the story of two women band together to make true the promise of America being “the land of the free”. On Ellis Island, in 1902, Francesca arrives fresh from Italy, seeking a better life in America, and Alma, an American, arrives to her first day of work at the immigration processing center. But America is not the place it has promised to be. As Francesca fights to make it off the island and Alma to become a translator, they form an unlikely friendship. This thoughtful historical fiction tells us of America's history of prejudice and exclusion, when newcomers were promised better lives but often received something quite different.
