Your Fondest Annie: Letters from Annie O’Donnell to James P. Phelan 1901-1904
by Annie O’Donnell, Author
Edited by Dr. Maureen Murphy
University College Dublin Press

Dr Maureen O. Murphy’s new volume is a welcome addition to our understanding of the epic story of the millions of women like Annie O’Donnell who left Ireland for America over the past four centuries. This is an important book in both migration studies and women’s history. It is also a love story and a wonderful read. Irish Literary Supplement, Spring 2006
