Brooklyn by Colm Toibin

As I was reading the reviews of the book Brooklyn by Colm Toibin I decided that this should be a nice easy read so I ordered it from Better World Books. I loved the details of the setting but not sure what I missed in the reviews. All the reviews talked of a nice young girl moving from Ireland to Brooklyn and back again but what they did not mention is that while in the US she meets and marries an Italian man and when she goes back home she falls in love with a local Irishman. Now I did still find the story very easy as there was really no conflict or tension at all and I really feel the story needed it.
