In the early 20th century, three immigrants stand aboard a ship sailing into Ellis Island, each with their own dreams about what coming to America will mean for them: Daniel, a Polish boy with a love of language and law, and Lena and Joe, Jewish siblings hoping for a better life. They are about to meet New Yorkers Jake, a rough labor representative, and his dazzling girlfriend, Sophie. Together, they will change one another’s lives in ways no one could imagine. Over the next 50 years, these five friends come into and fall out of one another’s lives through joy and pain, tragedy and triumph. But there is one secret that could tear them apart forever.

Hillary Adrienne Stern is an attorney specializing in employment law. Originally from New York City, Hillary was a voracious reader as a child and dreamed of becoming a writer. Raising a family took time away from writing. Now, her two grown daughters now live in Brooklyn. And, after 12 years of widowhood, Hillary recently became engaged which, she says, proves that happy endings don’t only happen in books. The Garment Maker’s Daughter was inspired by stories she heard while growing up about life on the Lower East Side of New York City during the first half of the twentieth century.
