Titcomb's Bookshop welcomes author J. Courtney Sullivan to talk about and sign her new novel, "Saints for All Occasions" on Thursday, May 25 from 3:00 - 4:00pm. 

About the book: "This beautifully written Irish family saga moves from a small village in western Ireland to the suburbs of Boston where Charlie Rafferty joins other members of his family, finds work and begins to save money for his fiance, Nora Flynn and her sister Theresa to follow him.  Charlie and Nora marry and soon begin a lifetime of raising their four children. Family secrets produce courses of lives that create happiness and heartache never imagined by any of the participants.  The reader will be swept up into stories of adoption, same sex marriage, corruption and cloistered nuns.  Sullivan masterfully brings it all together with a hopeful ending."  - review from Elizabeth Merritt, Titcomb's Bookshop Book Buyer
