{a tree grows in brooklyn}

by Betty Smith

Good as a classic. It took a while for me to get into it. For about the first half of the book I had to force myself to read it. Not initially intriguing. But, as I got farther into the book, I got attached to the characters and wanted to find out what happened. More descriptive than I might like, but this description may have aided the attachment I had to the characters. An interesting perspective on what it really means to do without. I am extremely grateful for the things that I have, the warm and safe home and more than one dress to wear.
