Another excellent book by J. Courtney Sullivan. Dysfunctional Irish Family and a beloved beach house on the coast of Maine.
Alice is the matriarch...a selfish, imperious, manipulative, judgmental, mean spirited women, whose only saving grace is that she married a lovely, kind man. Kathleen is Alice’s oldest child and Maggie’s mother. Free spirited, aging hippie and former alcoholic , more like her mother than she cares to admit,
Ann Marie is Alice’s daughter in law, married to her son Patrick. She is a good mother and wife, always striving for perfection and to do the appropriate thing...Ann Marie is the perpetual Martyr.
And finally there is Maggie, Kathleen’s daughter. Maggie is sweet, kind intelligent...a lovely person ...unfortunately she is clueless about romance and she has the worst taste in men...they all come together at the beach house...
