Comments Bert Breen's Barn

  • Cynthia Egbert

    I finally finished this one! It took me a long time to get through this one. I would read for a bit and then put it aside and then come back. It began as a read-aloud to my kids but they did not engage with it so I finished it on my own. I was sad about that because it portrays well just what life was like back near the turn of the last century. I enjoyed the story but this is a character and description driven work, it is not really about the story. That usually captures me as I am a character [...]

    Lovely book. coming of age story of Tom Dolan, growing up in upsate NY, in the early 1900s, poor, but with a loving family (minus the no-good father, who's long gone). Tom's quest to own Bert Breen's barn unfolds over several years, and is aided by several good, salt of the earth folks, including Birdy, an old, physically twisted, but strong and knowledgeable, the owners of the local mill who provide Tom with his first job, and others, led by Tom's mother, Polly Ann. This is a slow, gentle read, [...]

    This was a rather slow moving book filled with what I think is too much description. It takes place at the beginning of the 20th century and is about Tom Dolan, a 14 year old boy who quits school and goes to work to try to improve the life of his 1 parent family. He wants to move a well-made barn to his property and the plot includes a treasure hunt of sorts. The plot was good, but too slow due to the detailed descriptions of taking down and putting up a barn.

    I read this in 3rd grade, and the story has stayed with me. I read this again, excited to read this book to my children. Great feel good book, with an obvious happy ending. But, we all need happy endings in this time we find ourselves in.

    I must still be a kid at heart because I enjoyed every minute of this book. The ending was a little unbelievable but the journey was worthwhile.

  • Hannah Victoria Katherine

    A charming book. The story is so real with everyday struggles and concerns but remains positive and engaging.
