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.

We have a snowy President's Day in Maryland. I have been out with my snow shovel. Take care if you must be out and about in winter weather conditions.

Roy, sounds like you should be reading several books this week since the weather is too cold to go out.

Good Monday morning to all. The highlight of our weekend was a visit to Longwood Gardens to see the annual Orchid Extravaganza exhibit.
