3 ½ stars
I love the main character: Molly. She's a feisty Irish Redhead who flees Ireland after accidentally killing a landowner and immigrates to New York City at the turn of the 20th century. There are great historical details about the transatlantic voyage, Ellis Island and New York City as well as a number of interesting and well-developed supporting characters. I plan to continue with the series, however I couldn’t give a higher rating because I didn't find the mystery itself to be terribly compelling.
