“No domestic animal can be as still as a wild animal. The civilized people have lost the aptitude of stillness, and must take lessons in silence from the wild before they are accepted by it.” ― Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen), Out of Africa

One of my two favorite books of all time! "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" — The American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century. This is one of those heartbreaking yet hopeful stories that will stay with you for a long time.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Probably my all time favorite book. I have read it so many times and each time it is better than the last.
I know its hard to say what your favorite book is especially since you are ever changing and everyday you feel differently. But this, in my short 18 years of life (in which I have read many books) this remains my all time favorite. There is a flavor it left in my mouth and heart that is in no way interchangable. http://www.novelexplorer.com/category/a-tree-grows-in-brooklyn/
"A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" — My all-time favorite book! I have read it about 4 or 5 times now.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn- my favorite book when I was in high school
#Favoritebook A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
Future reading list, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
"A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith When I saw this book at my September book club, my first reaction was how thick it was. It was nearly 500 pages! As of yesterday, I was only 150 pages into it, so the past two days have been a whirlwind of flipping pages and ignoring my kids (to a degree). My 3-year-old's encounter today with an inky stamp left her looking like Ronald McDonald. Mom's a book addict and hates going to book club with the book unfinished: guilty as charged. This title is one I have always heard of, but knew nothing about. It's the story about little Francie Nolan, a girl who grows up in the slums of Brooklyn, collecting gum wrappers and other rubbish off the streets to trade in for pennies to put in a little tin can bank hammered into the floor of the closet. The story is largely biographical of Betty Smith. It follows Francie starting at age 11, and following up through her 16th birthday, shortly after the start of WWI. I adored the glimpses into life of the Nolan family, despite their constant hardships. Franice's mother, Katie, had to clean houses to earn their rent, and when her father, Johnny, happened to get a gig as a singing waiter, there was sometimes enough to eat. But Johnny was an alchoholic and undependable for steady income. You'll meet Francie's eccentric Aunt Sissy, as well as other Nolan and Rommely family members who probably act a lot like people you're related to. "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" is more than a "coming of age" story. It's a snatch of American history, a story still touching readers 70 years later. I appreciated the window into Francie's life from nearly 100 years ago. So much has changed, but so much has remained constant. I guess when it was first published in 1943 it was considered scandalous, but those "shady" aspects of the book are something I can relate to, because reading these passages echo of controversies my generation sees every day. Not only could the story be eye-opening to the past and still feel familiar, Smith's writing style is simply classic. Her gift of story-telling pulls in the reader. It was comfortable, humorous, heart-breaking. I told myself I was going to make note of passages as I read this one. The writing was so lyrical and pictorial I wanted to remember it. But it was a library book and I read it so fast, that I only wrote down two passages. So, here they are, two token lines to represent the heart of this treasured book. "Katie had the same hardships as Johnny and she was nineteen, two years younger. It might be said that she, too, was doomed. Her life, too was over before it began. But there the similarity ended. Johnny knew he was doomed and accepted it. Katie wouldn't accept it. She started a new life where her old one left off" (97). "'You married him. There was something about him that caught your heart. Hang on to that and forget the rest'" (102).

“I didn't go to bookshops to buy. That's a little bourgeois. I went because they were civilized places. It made me happy there were people who sat down and wrote and wrote and wrote and there were other people who devoted their lives to making those words into books. It was lovely. Like standing in the middle of civilization.” ― Jerry Pinto, Em and The Big Hoom (Bookstore in Madrid, re-pinned by www.jane-davis.co.uk)

One of my favorites in Tasha Alexander's 'Lady Emily' series (#5). If near death in Constantinople wasn't challenge enough, recuperating at the mother-in-law's house in Normandy certainly is.

5th book in a great suspense series!
Returning from her honeymoon with Colin Hargreaves and a near brush with death in Constantinople, Lady Emily convalesces at her mother-in-law's beautiful estate in Normandy. But the calm she so desperately seeks is shattered when, out riding a horse, she comes upon the body of a young woman who has been brutally murdered. The girl's wounds are identical to those inflicted on the victims of Jack the Ripper, who has wreaked havoc across the channel in London. Emily feels a connection to the young woman and is determined to bring the killer to justice.Pursuing a trail of clues and victims to the beautiful medieval city of Rouen and a crumbling chateau in the country, Emily begins to worry about her own sanity: she hears the cries of a little girl she cannot find and discovers blue ribbons left in the child's wake. As Emily is forced to match wits with a brilliant and manipulative killer, only her courage, keen instincts and formidable will to win can help her escape becoming his next victim.
“If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?" ― Karen Blixen, aka Isak Dinesen
