È l’estate del 1912 a Brooklyn. I raggi obliqui del sole illuminano il cortile della casa dove abita Francie Nolan, riscaldano la vecchia palizzata consunta e le chiome dell’albero che, come grandi ombrelli verdi, riparano la dimora dei Nolan. Alc...

“The fulfillment of dreams and promises kept does not signal that the dance is over. The music plays on and we dance until our Father says it’s time to go home. Sometimes we even dance in the rain, but that’s OK. We’re going beyond!­” --­Betty T. Smith When God makes a promise, His fulfillment always exceeds our expectations. Once we submit to His calling, He takes us beyond our comfort zone into the fullness of life in Christ. Just as parents delight in watching their children grow, God longs to watch His precious children mature and learn to trust Him, pray and read the Word, and seek His will for our lives. Beyond the Happy Ending encourages each of us to trust God, and to believe in the life-­changing power of prayer. Betty Smith has witnessed reconciliation, restoration, healing and miracles in her own life and in the lives of others. God not only fulfilled His promise to restore her marriage, but He also opened doors and granted divine opportunities for her to travel around . . .

Corren los años veinte del siglo pasado y descubrimos a la pequeña Francie Nolan leyendo sentada en la escalera antiincendios de su casa, a la sombra de un árbol que solo crece en los barrios más pobres de las grandes ciudades. Poco a poco, la mirada se aleja de la chiquilla para abarcar a la estrafalaria familia Nolan, que malvive en un barrio de Brooklyn. Conoceremos así a sus padres, a su hermano y a la entrañable tía Sissy, que usa a los hombres para aplacar sus instintos maternales. Francie crece rodeada de los libros que tanto le gustan y pronto empieza a preguntar y a pedirle a la vida algo más que un triste acomodo en la mediocridad. De esas hermosas y tercas ganas de saber nace Un árbol crece en Brooklyn, una novela donde cualquier detalle de la vida doméstica revela un mundo hecho de apuestas y deseos, donde los personajes son tan próximos que nos duelen sus dolores y donde el sueño americano cobra por fin peso y color.­"Un libro bellísimo de una novelista maravillosa y . . .
