Very touching, well-written story about a woman between two worlds. I truly liked this and read it in one day!

Brooklyn lingers in your mind even after you have put it down. The events take place on both sides of the Atlantic, Ireland and the US, and the story of Tóibín’s protagonist beautifully portrays the immigrant experience. Brooklyn, however, is not just a historical novel but poses relevant questions in any day and age about the choices we make in life. We may not be free to make our own fate, but what matters in the end is accepting the life that you have - and living it to the fullest.
