Book Recommendation: Brooklyn (2009) by Colm Toibin

Book Recommendation: Brooklyn (2009) by Colm Toibin

 

Brooklyn (2009) is the story of a story of a young Irish woman who left her home to make a new life in the 1950's New York by New York Times bestselling author Colm Toibin. A feature film based on this novel was released in 2015 and has been nominated for three Academy Awards.

This is an easy to read novel and I recommend it for your reading list. I have not seen the movie. Use the links to learn more about the author and his books.
