Summary
Marie Commeford tells her life story, from her childhood in an Irish-American neighborhood in Brooklyn, to her relationship with her brother, who mysteriously leaves the priesthood, to her dual suitors, marriage, life threatening childbirth and the discomforts of old age. A novel filled with loss and love, small joys and tender moments.
Critique
A beautifully written, quiet but stunning book about an 'everyday' woman that highlights the extraordinary nature of our ordinary lives.
