Beyond the Brooklyn Bridge

Front Cover
Sunstone Press, 1998 - Fiction - 159 pages
Since the triumph of "Our Town", many American writers have sensed the tug of the past, the longing to share the sights, sounds and smells of gentler times with each new generation. Bernie Carton is part of that noble tradition as she depicts Brooklyn, New York in the glittering 1920s and the depressed 1930s -- a time when America was innocent and hopeful. This evocative portrait will appeal to young people exploring their roots as well as to older people looking for the glow of cherished memories. Carton uses the eye of a journalist and the sensitivity of a novelist to explore a long-past world where nobody ever left Brooklyn because it was the center of the universe.

I grew up about a mile away and co-remember the things that Bernice writes about in her beautiful book. How beautifully she writes. Thank you, Bernice
