Saints for All Occasions | J. Courtney Sullivan
121 posts | 96 read | 4 reading | 133 to read
A sweeping, unforgettable novel from The New York Times best-selling author of Maine, about the hope, sacrifice, and love between two sisters and the secret that drives them apart. Nora and Theresa Flynn are twenty-one and seventeen when they leave their small village in Ireland and journey to America. Nora is the responsible sister; she's shy and serious and engaged to a man she isn't sure that she loves. Theresa is gregarious; she is thrilled by their new life in Boston and besotted with the fashionable dresses and dance halls on Dudley Street. But when Theresa ends up pregnant, Nora is forced to come up with a plan--a decision with repercussions they are both far too young to understand. Fifty years later, Nora is the matriarch of a big Catholic family with four grown children: John, a successful, if opportunistic, political consultant; Bridget, privately preparing to have a baby with her girlfriend; Brian, at loose ends after a failed baseball career; and Patrick, Nora's favorite, 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. A graceful, supremely moving novel from one of our most beloved writers, Saints for All Occasions explores the fascinating, funny, and sometimes achingly sad ways a secret at the heart of one family both breaks them and binds them together.

I‘ve gone with the band name for this one....

The Utah Saints, a dance /Electronica band, were formed in Harrogate (my hometown) in 1991.

I really enjoyed this book, gifted to me by the lovely @Cinfhen , you could say it was #somethinggood !

Really enjoyed this book. Initially it felt like the standard ‘Irish family emigrating to the US‘ saga but it was much more than that. This is a new-to-me author and I definitely want to eat more.

It will also fit Massachusetts for my Reading the States challenge, as it is set in Boston but also the author is from Mass.

Thanks so much for sending it to me Cindy @Cinfhen ! 😘

Mehso-so

Sooooooooooooo I don't enjoy Irish immigration books. (The stories of actual people are great, though.) There are so many books just like this! I don't know why we needed another one. But once the story moved more into the contemporary family, I was much more invested. I wish the beginning had felt fresh, but I've read the same thing too many times.

I read a BUNCH while we were away and there wasn‘t a stinker in the bunch:
Blindsighted - #StartASeries Thanks @swishandflick
Gruesome and gory and a great introduction to these characters that I am looking forward to following.

Saints for All Occasions - J. Courtney Sullivan‘s best yet. An Irish Catholic family saga that had me nodding along in recognition. One of my favorites this year.

👇🏼

MicheleinPhilly Only Child - Read it with a perpetual lump in my throat and full on lost it several times. This was an incredibly difficult read. (edited) 1y
MicheleinPhilly Tangerine - A GREAT noir that was the perfect beach read. 1y
MicheleinPhilly The Wife - My first Alafair Burke and it exceeded my expectations. Less of a thriller and more of a portrait of a marriage and the #MeToo movement. Loved it. 1y

Sullivan was obviously raised in a great big boisterous family. Her depiction of family gatherings and squabble are so genuine and intimate you‘d swear she was a fly on the wall. This book spans 50 + years and centers around two sisters from Ireland who come to the United States until an unforeseen decision shatters their relationship. The storyline is predictable and the ending weak, but I still fell hard for the Rafferty‘s. 3.5 🌟🌟🌟#TBRbingo

For me this book was between a 'so-so' and a 'pick' This book is well written but I just wasn't enthralled by it. I did enjoyed it the more I kept reading it. I still think 'Maine' is her best book

Many of the characters in this book were highly well-developed. Without spoiling anything, there were several settings throughout the story that helped me empathize and truly understand the point of view of the character in such a way that hasn‘t been done before or I haven‘t encountered before. The author wrote of an Irish Catholic family in a modern manner that I found myself relating to. I plan on reading another one of Sullivan‘s books.

J. Courtney Sullivan this afternoon... she is AWESOME.

I‘ve read each of her other books over the years and they‘re quite special to me. Her latest is still on my TBR so brought it along hoping to get it inscribed and she was over the moon when I asked her! And she says (above) she looks forward to reading my bookS (PLURAL). Her confidence/support for new writers is lovely.

This book starts off in 1950's Ireland, ends in Boston and goes through to 2009. It's a story of secrets and it spans 50 years of a family and its ups and downs and it goes back and forth in timelines. It's beautifully written and you can picture yourself in Ireland and Boston. Having lived on the west coast of Ireland and know Boston, it was all so familiar to me. Loved this one.

Mehso-so

The narrator did a good job with the multiple accents in this audiobook, but the story itself was a little flat. The story deals primarily with two sisters who come to the US from Ireland in the 1950s and the secrets and resentments they harbor towards one another. The book opens with the death of an adult child of one of the sisters. We hear from his other siblings, but their stories are only tangential to the story of the sisters. 3⭐️

I️ love that this book calls into question how much we know about those we love, and how much we really want to know. It‘s an immigration story about two sisters that spans decades, and the way their life‘s choices impact the trajectory of their lives. There was great peace but also great turmoil, and I️t was difficult to unravel the layers of the years in order to make sense of how it all turned out. Very visceral and genuine.

Bostonmomx2 I read another of hers that was just simply not good so I was hesitating on this one. Glad you liked it. I‘ll have to add it to the ever growing list. 2y

The writing is beautiful and I found so many passages that I'd have to stop and read again - then underline - then re-read again. A few that made me wipe a tear from my eye. The story is a gorgeous depiction of life - marriage, motherhood, family, sacrifice, and grief. It was a book I couldn't put down, yet I also found that I made myself intentionally slow down while reading it so I could savor every single detail.
