The Parting Glass

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is about three sisters from Cleveland. The family business is a saloon/restaurant that has been in business since the early 1900's. The family is Irish. One of the sisters is a single mom to an autistic toddler. She moves to Ireland to act as an in-home caregiver to a newly discovered relative, a job that will allow her to spend significant time teaching her son. While there she meets a handsome widower. Another sister runs the saloon and at the beginning of the book the saloon burns durin her wedding reception--she married a former priest. The book not only talks about their lives today, but also about the ancestors they share and their stories. It had a happy ending, maybe almost too happy, but I like to be left smiling.
