Since their mother's death when they were just children, Nora Flynn has always looked out for her little sister, Theresa. Nora never wanted to leave Ireland, but set sail for Boston, Massachusetts, to give Theresa a chance at a better life. Nora never really wanted to marry Charlie Rafferty, but she said "I do" to protect Theresa from a mistake that could upend her promising future. Fifty years later, Nora is head of a boisterous Irish-Catholic clan for whom family is everything…even though years have passed since she spoke to Theresa, now living as a cloistered nun in Vermont. But when tragedy strikes, it pierces the heart of a secret the sisters have shared for half a century. And as the years fade away and the story unfolds, readers are drawn into a poignant family drama about the complex bonds of love—between siblings, parents and children, and couples—and the power of forgiveness.
