*** THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER *** Marie-Claire has just discovered that her business partner and boyfriend, the man she hoped to one day marry, has been cheating on her. Reeling, she leaves behind her apartment in Toronto to travel home to Ireland, hoping some familiar faces will help ground her. She's arriving just in time to celebrate her great aunt Reverend Mother Brigid’s retirement and eightieth birthday. It will be a long-awaited reunion for three generations of her family, bringing her mother Keelin and grandmother Imelda—who have never quite got along—together as well.
And then all hell breaks loose.
Bitter, jealous Imelda makes a startling revelation at the party that forces them all to confront their pasts, admit mistakes, and face the truths that have shaped their lives. With four fierce, opinionated women in one family, will they ever be able to find common ground and move forward?
