    Sometimes when I read a book , I can t help but wonder what was the one thing, or the one moment, or the one place , or the one person that moved the author to set the story in motion Once in a while in an interview or note at the beginning or end of the book , the author shares that personal spark of creativity with us Connie Hertzberg Mayo tells the reader in the afterword how she first came to know about Thompson Isl

    On the surface, The Island of Worthy Boys is a story of two Boston boys in the last years of the 19th century who find escape at an island Farm School from a life of thievery after accidentally stabbing a mark one night I had never heard of this Farm School in Boston Harbor The author spoke to an alumnus in her research and also the school s self published newspaper that was printed each week.It is a well told story, givin

    This was an engaging, beautifully written work of historical fiction While the main characters Charles and Aidan are fictitious, Boston Asylum and Farm School for Indigent Boys did actually exist as does Thompson Island MA Charles and Aidan meet quite by accident and although Charles is wary of people and used to being alone the two quickly become the best of friends They are each suffering through their own hard...

    My Rating 4.5 starsI m simply saying that a boy is not defined by just one thing that he has done But they are criminals, Mary said with some confusion No, Mary they are boys who committed crimes They are not even adults who have committed crimes They have not yet become the persons they will be as adults for the rest of their lives Seereviews like this first on my blogI ve had this book on my kindle app for around 8 months now, an

    Aiden Sullivan and Charles Wheeler are 11 and 12 years old in Boston in 1889 Aiden, nominally Catholic, nominally Irish, has no father and a consumptive, dying mother Charles, an orphan who has already done time for stealing a sandwich, is living by his considerable wits on the streets They connect early and plausibly in Connie Hertzberg Mayo s fascinating new novel, The Island of Worthy Boys.Mayo shows the boys daily scramble to make

    A very appealing piece of historical fiction by a first time author, of particular appeal to those of us in the Boston area who may have visited Thompson s Island in Boston harbor It tells of two boys in turn of the last century Boston who find their way to the real life Boston Farm School in desperation, and discover a chance to turn their troubled lives around Sobering to realize what life was like for poor or orphaned children before


  8. says:

    The Island of Worthy Boys was an intriguing read that I wanted to get back to each day It is full of historical detail about a time and place not usually documented an island near Boston for poor but not delinquent boys to be educated This is a different sort of concept, and it was refreshing to read fiction based on fact that shows the inherent goodness of people rather than merely r...

    Just finished this historical novel and loved the story, the character development, the layering of minor attributes e.g Aidan s sense of smell, Charles s treatment of the dog to indicate character and future action The story is based upon a little known school for boys, Farm School, which existed on a small island off the Bosto...

    I got lost in the story of these young boys on the streets of Boston Connie implanted graphic images throughout the entire story in my brain that kept me compelled The school and the headmaster intrigued me I got a little panicky when I realized I was almost finished and couldn t decide how it would end and what I was going to do with myself when it did I wantedof Aiden and Charles and loved that Connie already had her characters picked out when
