All are welcome to join us as we discuss J. Courtney Sullivan’s novel Saints for All Occasions.
Plot Summary: Sisters Nora and Theresa Flynn leave their home in Ireland for a new life in 1958 Boston. Each adjusts to life in America in her own way. Steady Nora watches younger Theresa, until choices made by each woman drive the sisters apart. We follow the story from 1958 to contemporary New England, Ireland, and New York, exploring how siblings and children relate to their parents and each other as they age.
About the Author: J. Courtney Sullivan has an uncanny ability to capture the nuances of personality and the multi-faceted nature of human relationships. Her tales of women’s friendships, careers, marriages, their loves and losses, are thoughtful and moving. Sullivan’s complex female characters evolve and grow over the course of her novels, bringing her readers fresh insights on their motivations and actions. Much like life, Sullivan’s bittersweet novels are both entertaining and illuminating.
