Brooklyn – Colm Tóibín

Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín is a lovely, lovely novel. Set initially in small-town Ireland in the 1950s, it follows the young Eilis as she starts a new life and finds love in Brooklyn.

Tragic news from home leads her back to her roots and to her having to make choices about her future.

A wonderful, well written story, I cried at the end. Highly recommended.
