About the book(Goodreads):
Eilis Lacey has come of age in small-town Ireland in the hard years following World War Two. When an Irish priest from Brooklyn offers to sponsor Eilis in America, she decides she must go, leaving her fragile mother and her charismatic sister behind.
Eilis finds work in a department store on Fulton Street, and when she least expects it, finds love. Tony, who loves the Dodgers and his big Italian family, slowly wins her over with patient charm. But just as Eilis begins to fall in love, devastating news from Ireland threatens the promise of her future.
I really like this book. I felt it have a great moral about the grass being greener on the other side. I felt that most of the characters were a little blend. I also felt that Eilis would have done more in Brooklyn then what was written that she did. I also felt that Ireland would have more to offer as well.
I give the book 3 stars out of 5 stars.
