I was flying through The Book Thief and not ready for it to end yet. Started The Saturday Evening Girls Club, about 2 Italian Catholic and 2 Jewish Russian immigrant friends in Boston‘s North End in the early 1900s. Looking forward to the proverbs at the beginning of each chapter.

It wasn't just my father, but the generations who made my father whose weight was still upon me.

Not often I read a book with a character I don't like. The father in this book has gotten on my last nerve. #immigrantfiction #nyc
