The characters are unforgettable and totally heartbreaking (the father! ) and the setting (Brooklyn, 1912-1918) is really interesting and informative. The book is full of little details about people's way of life in the early 20th century.
I highly, highly, highly recommend.
Well I am so glad I kept reading cause this is such a great book! I can see why this is a classic and why after so many years this book is still loved by many.
There are a lot of details in this book but it made me really see the picture of Brooklyn in those days. Loved the main character and her family.
I did not want it to end.
