A pleasant read. Interesting how the chapters are not sequential in Marie's life.

Graceful, touching story of a woman growing up and living in Brooklyn in the period post WWII. Superb and one of the best I've read in a long time.

Very good, enjoyable story of random events of one woman's life.

So true to life, how the randomness of joy and tragedy touches a life at different intervals. Very nicely written. Very engaging.
