A Gemma Open Door book
New immigrants share a subway ride over the Charles River‎…‎and much more‎
The Charles River divides Boston and Cambridge, and the Red Line ties the ‎cities together, traveling through an expanse of class and cultures along its route‎. ‎When an unlikely combination of riders share an afternoon train, they are surprised ‎to discover what’s common in their American experience‎.
Loretta Welch has lived and worked as a writer throughout the country‎. ‎After studying ‎at Trinity College, Dublin, working in publishing in San Francisco, she landed in ‎Boston‎’‎s North End, steps away from the shore on which her immigrant ancestors first set foot, five generations ago‎. ‎Yankee Doodle‎ is Welch‎’‎s first novel‎.
