In 1905, Clara left her husband, Walter, in Accrington, Lancashire, and sailed off to Philadelphia in America with her lover, George, and her youngest daughter, Jenny, with them. She left behind seven other children, aged between 7 and 21.
Why did she go? Did she ever regret it? How did Jenny cope with being an only child in a strange country. What happened to the family left behind.
Dreaming of America puts flesh on the dry bones provided by historical records. It becomes a story to read and enjoy, maybe even an explanation of those events over a hundred years ago.
