Sullivan, J. Courtney2018
Books, Manuscripts
Nora and Theresa Flynn are 21 and 17 when they leave their small village in Ireland and journey to America. Nora is shy and serious, and engaged to a man she isn't sure that she loves. Theresa is thrilled by their new life in Boston and besotted with the dance halls on Dudley Street. But when Theresa ends up pregnant, Nora is forced to come up with a plan. 50 years later, Nora is the matriarch of a big Catholic family with four grown children: John, a successful political consultant; Bridget, privately preparing to have a baby with her girlfriend; Brian, at loose ends after a failed baseball career; and Patrick, the beautiful boy who gives her no end of heartache. Estranged from her sister and cut off from the world, Theresa is a cloistered nun, living in an abbey in rural Vermont. Until, after decades of silence, a sudden death forces Nora and Theresa to confront the choices they made so long ago.
