Read full description of the books:
I never knew that Kathryn Forbes had written another book (besides the beloved Mama's Bank Account) until Susann shared this novel with me. It's also narrated by a young girl growing up poor, but unlike Katrin, Allie is exposed to the seamy side of life. Her parents are separated, and the novel describes her torn loyalties between mother and father in a way that foreshadows the later problem novels about children of divorce.
Transfer Point so strongly echoes A Tree Grows in Brooklyn that I looked up publication dates, out of curiosity: Tree novel 1943, Tree movie 1945, Transfer Point 1947. So the author was certainly aware of Tree, and probably knew comparisons would be made. Transfer Point depicts San Francisco of the 1920s as vividly as Francie's Brooklyn. It's an unusual and interesting novel.

Forbes, born Kathryn Anderson, was the granddaughter of Norwegian immigrants. She was a writer best known for Mama's Bank Account, a fictionalized memoir about a Norwegian family in 1920s San Francisco. The book focused on the warmhearted family and its struggles and dreams.

Forbes also published novel called Transfer Point, about a daughter of divorced parents. This was considered to have been based on Forbes' own childhood.
