Just that really - love the whole travelling on a ship to a new country and a new start, and wondered if anyone had any recommendations of books with a journey like that - or early years of the United States would be good too. Thanks.

You might not want to read The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan grin but it is good.

Joseph O'Connor, The Star of the Sea - though rather grim!
