Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - G O O D R E AGDOSO D R E A D S - Saints For All Oc­ca­sions by Courtney Sul­li­van (R295, Lit­tle, Brown)

A mem­o­rable, mov­ing must-read from one of our favourite au­thors

SIS­TERS NORA AND THERESA are 21 and 17 when they leave Ire­land for Amer­ica. When Theresa falls preg­nant, her sis­ter quickly mar­ries a man she doesn’t love and adopts the child as her own. This story flits back and forth be­tween the past and the present, ex­plor­ing the dif­fi­cult choices Nora and Theresa make be­cause of their cir­cum­stances, and the wedge it drives be­tween them. A com­pelling read cov­er­ing five decades, with like­able char­ac­ters and real is­sues of love, grat­i­tude and fam­ily loy­alty at its core.
