Summary
  • A multigenerational tale about the passionate loves and losses of women in a family of firefighters traces their experiences spanning from famine-era Ireland to Brooklyn a decade after the September 11 attacks
  • Norah, the first member of her family to move from Ireland to New York, is a mother of three, contemplating her husband's casket as his men give him a full fireman's funeral, and faced with a terrible choice. Norah's mother-in-law, Delia, is stoic and self-preserving. Her early losses have made her keep her children close and her secrets closer.

As Delia experiences 9/11, the reader is blindsided by the events of that terrible day along with her
