This Must Be the Place by Maggie O’Farrell 382 pages

Daniel Sullivan is retrieving his father’s ashes when he meets Claudette Wells, a world famous movie star who abandoned her high profile life to live anonymously with her young son.  Thus begins Daniel and Claudette’s lives together in an very isolated part of Ireland.  Told from different points of view, This Must Be the Place is Daniel’s story from his Catholic upbringing in Brooklyn to his college years in England to his first marriage in California to his life with Claudette.  At the onset of the novel, the reader begins to learn that Daniel is suddenly paying for the mistakes he made when he was young and the secrets he told no one.

O’Farrell writes an engaging tale with interesting, complex characters.  Another good summer read.
