Tale of Two Cities. Of course I was required to read this in High School, but I actually ended up loving the entire book. The dynamics of rich vs poor, living next to each other in cities across the water and experiencing life so differently. It is life as we know it, all laid out in a classic book.
“Felicidade é aquele sorriso bobo no rosto de quem decidiu, simplesmente, esquecer qualquer tristeza e ser feliz... E quando perguntam o porquê de ser assim, responde 'sei lá', acho que ser feliz faz bem pra mim...!”
Sarah met Jacob through an ad in a newspaper. Their first form of communication was letter writing. They wrote back and forth before actually being able to meet each other. You can learn a lot about someone through how they write about themselves. Through their letters, Sarah felt that she wanted to meet Jacob and his children.
