Ellen Alden was sifting through her attic and discovered a leather box filled with Civil War era letters from her great, great grandfather. These letters written to his wife and children from the lines of the Virginia battlefields, tell the story of an Irish immigrant farmer forced to seek a better life in America. Similar to the challanges that immigrants still face today, this story speaks of the sacrifices families make to improve their lives. Ellen will discuss her new novel, Yours Faithfully, Florence Burke: An Irish Immigrant Story, which is based on the letters she found in her attic. Visit www.ellenalden.com. Copies of her book will be available.

Ellen B. Alden is a graduate of St. Michael's College. She has degrees from Pepperdine University and studied at Merrimack College. She resides in Andover with her husband, three children and two dogs.
