The Crazyladies of Pearl Street

The Crazyladies of Pearl Street: A Novel The Crazyladies of Pearl Street: A Novel by Trevanian

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Incredible period detail from the 1930's is married with profound emotional insight and rich poetic description. You are transported into the Great Depression as seen through the eyes of a very observant child. Excellent.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
