9780816133024: Tomorrow Will Be Better

One review of this book by Betty Smith (author of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn), also a book about growing up in Brooklyn, states "There is something about the way Betty Smith writes that just pulls me deep into her life. I say "her life" because we are getting slices of her life in each of her novels. {"A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" and "Joy in the Morning" are the most directly autobiographical.} Even though her prose are direct and her stories are deceptively simple, I cannot put her books down. I am there with her characters, inside their lives as they are living them. Like in "Angela's Ashes," the Irish/American impoverished desperation and the raw immediacy of young life are stark and vivid in "Tomorrow will be Better." Parents who never had a chance to develop emotional and physical resources themselves, are brutal toward their children. The children have not lost hope for a better life, but they see people who have given up all around them. As a prejudiced on-looker, I am driven to hope that they get the opportunity to be loved and loving and rise above their parents' frightening existence. This is just as riveting as the rest of her books. I only wish that there were more!"
