Historical | Fiction

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 entertainment—they’re a sweet reminder of her storyteller father. After his death, Annie fled Ireland for the land of dreams, finding work at Hawkins House.

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 Furthermore, the friendly postman shows a little too much interest in Annie—and in her father’s unpublished stories. In fact, he suspects these tales may hold a grand secret.

Though the postman’s intentions seem pure, Annie wants to share her father’s stories on her own terms. Determined to prove herself, Annie must forge her own path to aid her friend and create the future she’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!!
Congratulations!!

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.
