The Liberation of Brigid Dunne

by Patricia Scanlan

The Liberation of Brigid Dunne Synopsis

*** THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER ***One explosive family reunion. A lifetime of secrets revealed. When four feisty women from the same family get together at a family reunion, anything can happen... Marie-Claire, betrayed by her partner Marc, plans to teach him a lesson he will never forget. She travels home from Toronto to Ireland, to the house of the Four Winds, for her great-aunt Reverend Mother Brigid's eightieth birthday celebrations. It will be a long-awaited reunion for three generations of family, bringing together her mother, Keelin, and grandmother, Imelda - who have never quite got along And then all hell breaks loose. Bitter, jealous Imelda makes a shocking revelation that forces them all to confront their pasts, admit mistakes, and face the truths that have shaped their lives. With four fierce, opinionated women in one family, will they ever be able to forgive the past and share a future? And what of Marc? It's never too late to make amends...or is it? Spanning generations and covering seismic shifts in the lives of women, The Liberation of Brigid Dunne is a compelling, thought-provoking, important and highly emotional novel from a trailblazing author in women's fiction.
