It may be remarkable, but it certainly is wise. When young Bridie immigrates to America, the one thing she chooses to bring is a shovel. That shovel serves her well on her journey from small tenement garden to hard-won farm and acts as silent witness to the joys and griefs of family life. Katherine Kellgren narrates with gentleness and resolve. She sounds as determined and straightforward as Bridie does as she sets about each new task. Her pacing leaves time to savor accomplishments or delight in Mary Azarian’s artwork, should the book be at hand. A.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
