Saints for All Occasions by J. Courtney Sullivan 333 pages

Nora and Theresa Flynn leave Ireland for Boston in the early 1950’s.  Nora, the older of the sisters, is on her way, with much trepidation,  to meet her -soon-to-be husband, Charles.  Theresa is seventeen years old and eager to start a new life in America.  What happens to the Flynn sisters as well as the rest of  their family over the next five decades is the plot of Saints for All Occasions.

Although this novel concerns an Irish Catholic family, believe me, you don’t have to be Irish or Catholic to enjoy it.  Sullivan’s engaging, vividly portrayed characters kept me reading and being concerned for all of them, especially Nora and Theresa.
