I’m participating with Carolyn Astfalk and Catholic Mom.com in An Open Book. Here’s what I’ve been reading and working on for the past month.
Margaret Ferry by Mary Flynn
Amazon Synopsis: In 1950s Brooklyn, Margaret Ferry’s compassion crosses the line when she stubbornly disregards the wishes of her parental aunt and uncle at a time when they are facing their own personal challenges. The theft of her uncle’s valuable papers puts his job and career in great jeopardy, while her aunt is coming to terms with the heartbreaking news she received from her doctor. Compounding their struggles is Aunt Lolly, whose innocent intentions usually have disastrous results. Lolly’s gift of a beautiful vintage shawl leads to catastrophe and the unfolding of events that are inexplicable, mystifying and life-changing beyond their immediate family and neighborhood. Amid trials, tribulations and the most unexpected turn of events, this is a story of conflict and love, goodness and miracles, and a secret whose consequences are unknown until the final surprising twist.
