review: Brooklyn's in my Heart


I was so impressed by this novel. I fell in love with the film version first, and I wasn't sure that the book could match it. I know... often the book is better than the movie, but sometimes it's the opposite. Who wouldn't rather watch The Notebook or Bridget Jones' Diary rather than read those books? So, while I was eager to read the book and delve more deeply into Eilis Lacey's story of immig...

“Teachers knew every one of the students, their secrets, their grades, their home situations. And all the students knew the teachers. It was like teachers were people who finally were the most popular at school.”
Victoria Kahler, Their Friend Scarlet

“She felt just like that girl in that book with the letter A on her chest. Only her A signified Alone. She was an outcast, cast out by her own choices, an outsider with a pretty face. Like a rose, she may have been beautiful to look at, but almost everyone only knew the thorny side.”
Victoria Kahler, Their Friend Scarlet

“Emerald slopes became so tall they touched the clouds, and showers painted diamond waterfalls that sluiced down cliff sides.”
Victoria Kahler, Capturing the Sunset

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“She thoroughly felt the pitch and roll of the ship as it traveled southerly across the ocean. It was a pleasant feeling, an ancient one that every person who had ever loved the sea had felt and cherished--to be rocked to sleep, as if in a mother's arms or in a cradle.”
Victoria A. Kahler, Seven on the Blue

“The morning was on fire as the sun rose, seemingly from the ocean depths. The great, glowing orb came to the surface and set the horizon aflame. Many minutes passed, and it floated fully into the sky to light the day and gently warm the sea below.”
Victoria A. Kahler, Seven on the Blue

“It isn't that life ashore is distasteful to me. But life at sea is better.”
Francis Drake

“She watched the gap between ship and shore grow to a huge gulf. Perhaps this was a little like dying, the departed no longer visible to the others, yet both still existed, only in different worlds.”
Susan Wiggs, The Charm School
