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.
