The Kelleher family has been coming to Maine for six years. Their beachfront cottage, won on a barroom bet after the war, is a place where children run in packs, showers are taken outdoors, and threadbare sweaters are shared on chilly nights. It is also a place where cocktail hour follows morning mass, nosy grandchildren snoop in drawers, and ancient grudges simmer below the surface. As Maggie, Kathleen, and Anne Marie descend on Alice and the cottage, each woman brings her own baggage--a secret pregnancy, a terrible crush, and a deeply held resentment for misdeeds of the past.

A departure from my norm. Good narrator, tedious conversations, heavy on guilt, Catholic & catholic. I kept wanting to skip ahead as one does with print, just to get on with tedium. Seriously doubt I'd try this author again for fear of same. Dysfunctional families come in all shapes.
