Every Minute

Dear God

I love coming-of-age novels, stories with strong female characters, and books that provide glimpses into the everyday lives of people in different eras and areas.  Betty Smith nailed my criteria for a good read with A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.  It is the type of book that I know I will reread numerous times throughout my life, and at the times when I’m choosing to delve into new books instead of revisiting old favorites, I can gather a shot of strength and inspiration from quotes like this one.
