The book included interesting tidbits from life in the early 20th century and some nuggets of wisdom. One passage that stood out was, “They learned no compassion from their own anguish. Thus their suffering was wasted.” That is a great life lesson for everyone to learn when they go through hard times.
I found it interesting how Francie’s mother was completely against any form of charity, and she was determined to get by on her own hard work and merits even if that meant some cold, hungry nights. Imagine what our society would be like today if people took their own fortunes into their hands and were willing to work hard for a living!
I thoroughly enjoyed sharing in Francie’s highs and lows as she endured some hard times, but still managed to have some fun along the way. The episodes recounted in the book had me smiling at times, angry at the injustices Francie encountered, and sad at times as Francie learned some of life’s hard lessons. I recommend the book to anyone looking for a good family story, a look at life nearly a 100 years ago, and a story of hope and possibility.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn receives an A+ rating from me. It fulfilled my need to read a classic. It is a refreshing read from my regular fare of mysteries and biographies. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to read a classic book. This is termed a modern classic because it was written less than one hundred years ago.
