Strong Women?

I recently read two very different novels about young female immigrants – the books were both rereads –my latest reviews:  Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín (2009) and Americana by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (2013).   Both authors are themselves immigrants, from Ireland and Nigeria respectively,  Adichie is young and female while Tóibín is somewhat older and male (which may make no difference).  Brooklyn takes place in Ireland and New York in the 1950s,  Americanah is set in Nigeria, Philadelphia and Baltimore plus a bit in London.
