Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
I listened to Brooklyn as a playaway. I saw the movie, which was very good and really wanted to read the book. The audio was a great alternative when the book was checked out. It was beautifully read with the Irish accents. Brooklyn follows young Irish immigrant Eilis Lacey as she makes her way from Ireland to Brooklyn in the 1950s for chance of a better life. When she finds herself torn between her family in Ireland and her new life and love in Brooklyn, she is faced with a most difficult choice.
