FROM THE BOOK JACKET:
When we meet Norah, she 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. Eileen, Delia's daughter, adopted from Ireland and tough as nails, yet desperate for a sense of belonging, is one of the first women firefighters in New York. It is through her eyes that we experience the events of an otherwise picture-perfect fall day in 2001, and are blindsided along with her.
Kathleen Donohoe was raised in Brooklyn in a family of Irish American firefighters. She has published short stories in several literary magazines and currently serves on the board of Irish American Writers & Artists. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and son. This is her first novel."
