The Saturday Evening Girls Club by Jane Healey. Published by Lake Union

In early twentieth century Boston, four female immigrants try to find their place in their new world by joining the Saturday Evening Girls Club, where they make pottery and get to know each other and their adopted country. Caprice, Ada, Thea and Maria all come from different place, have different goals and expectations, but all want a piece of the American dream. This is such a beautifully written and timely story. It’s a good reminder of how our ancestors came here to make better lives for themselves and stood up for things like equality, fairness in the workplace and women’s rights. America has been and will always be only as great as her people
