The Kelleher clan's beachfront holiday house creaks under a weight of secrets, a place where children eavesdrop and cocktails follow morning mass. One summer, as three generations of Kelleher women descend on the shore, ancient grudges swim to the surface. As changeable as the sea next to their house, the Kelleher family is by turns fierce and loving, cruel and unforgiving.
Maine is a novel of sibling rivalry and painful secrets, alcoholism and denial, which lays bare the paradoxical nature of family and the love that we are bound to, no matter how savage the storm.
