On a dim winter afternoon, a young Irish immigrant opens the gas taps in his Brooklyn tenement. In the aftermath of the fire that follows, Sister St. Savior, an aging nun, appears, unbidden, to direct the way forward for his widow and his unborn child. In Catholic Brooklyn, in the early part of the twentieth century, decorum, superstition, and shame collude to erase the man's brief existence, and yet his suicide, although never spoken of, reverberates through many lives--testing the limits and the demands of love and sacrifice, of forgiveness and forgetfulness, through multiple generations.

Yes, I believe that the time preceding ones planned demise is one's very own time...as the opening goes. I've tried several of AMcD's books & thus far the only one I liked has been Someone, yet I keep trying her. Maybe it would help to be Catholic, not just catholic; to be an imbiber, just not a deadly-dose kind of imbiber. She is grand at describing the drinker & the disaster of it, the obsessive believer, the controllers in families.
