it was amazing
Recommended for: People who live in Brooklyn

What a sweet character, little Francie Nolan. She is so endearing, and easy to relate to. This book is beautifully written. I loved reading it, although, I should say, it's kind of a slow read, but don't let that discourage you. The reason it moves slow, is because it's following the rhythm of life. Don't expect swift plot changes, that would defeat the purpose of this story. The best way to describe this book is a classic.

I currently live in East Williamsburg, and very much enjoyed reading about a past Williamsburg environment, although it surprised me that quite frankly, it wasn't that far removed from what I live in today.

If you're on the hunt for a well written book, that is easy to read, and tells a beautiful story, pick up this book and give it a try. Don't pressure yourself to read it quickly, just read it as you feel in the mood. It's a great rainy day book. to cuddle up with.
