family in 1950s. Thos book tells us to keep good faith in love in a selfless way. The
story will touch everyone’s heart, especially the ones of hundreds of immigrant
families. Like Katie’s.
After I read this book, I realize that Katie is the most important and bravest
character in the story. When Lynn is ill, Katie is the one who takes over the
responsibilities to take care of Lynn and her brother, Sammy. In fact, Katie can be
found in everyone’s family that is filled with a lot laughter and tears shared together.
When Katie’s parents finally bought the house for the family, Lynn became ill
and died at the end. It’s an irony of life. We work hard to improve our living
condition; however, we have no control of our own destiny. The hope we see in this
book is the strong bonding among all family members. Even though Lynn is gone, the
love and faith stay.
