Rosaleen, the amazing, infuriating, heartbroken and heartbreaking matriarch of the Madigan family, is selling the family home in the west of Ireland, much to the chagrin of her four adult children. The novel spans thirty years as the children move across the globe then return for one last Christmas, each desperate to reclaim family connections and childhood memories. Incredible writing and storytelling. One of my very favorite books ever.

“Steeped in the moist earth of Ireland, this is the story of the Madigan family and the life that forces them apart, only to return again to a home filled with memories. Rosaleen suffers greatly at the loss of her four children - not to death, but to lives of their own: her eldest to New York, another to Mali, one daughter to a hospital career, and another to the 'big city' of Dublin. The concept of 'family' still holds them together despite years and circumstances, and as Rosaleen announces plans to sell the family home, a last Christmas gathering proves profound.”
