The year is 1901, the literary sensation The Wonderful
Wizard of Oz is taking New York City by storm, and everyone
wonders where the next great book will come from. But to
Annie Gallagher, stories are more than entertainmentâ€”theyâ€™re
a sweet reminder of her storyteller father. After his death,
Annie fled Ireland for the land of dreams, finding work at
But when a fellow boarder with something to hide is accused
of misconduct and authorities threaten to shut down the
boardinghouse, Annie fears she may lose her new friends, her
housekeeping job . . . and her means of funding her dream: a
memorial library to honor her father. Furthermore, the
friendly postman shows a little too much interest in
Annieâ€”and in her fatherâ€™s unpublished stories. In fact, he
suspects these tales may hold a grand secret.
Though the postmanâ€™s intentions seem pure, Annie wants to
share her fatherâ€™s stories on her own terms. Determined to
prove herself, Annie must forge her own path to aid her
friend and create the future sheâ€™s always envisioned . . .
where dreams really do come true.

Re: Annie's Stories
I really wasn't aware that these storytellers existed until
I read your posting today. Your story fascinated me enough
that I would love to read your book, to find out the
background on these people, at least. I'm not of that
descent, but would find your book fascinating. I've always
said that when you learn something new, it's a good day!!
Whoever did the cover to your book, did a wonderful job!! I
think it's beautifully done - not only with the character of
Annie looking deep in thought, but the color of the books,
and the background in the window!! It adds depth to the
book, and makes you want to pick it up and read it!!

One of my friends is president of the National Association
of Black Storytellers and she always has a tale that goes
along with her personality dramatic and to the point. I
like hearing stories both from the initial storyteller and
secondhand. You never know what additional "facts" creep in
and reinforce the gist of the story.
