2016 Booklist #10: Astray

By Emma Donohue. Whoops, I got rid of this before taking a picture! This is a fascinating premise - writing short stories based on historical records, and all related to travel or immigration (and mostly centreds around or in America). The stories are generally well written vignettes, though generally made more poignant due to their historical origins. It lacked the emotional depth of 'Room', however.
