A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Betty Smithby Betty Smith
A book dealer came into Powell's rare book room one day while I was working and bought a beautiful first edition of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. She said it was her favorite book and a birthday present to herself. From the look in her eye and the way she clutched it in her hands, I knew I had to read it. It is a lovely story about Francie Nolan, a young girl growing up in the slums of Brooklyn. She ultimately discovers that people, like trees, can sometimes flourish in the most dismal conditions.
