Some brief overview of book

A magnificent new novel from one of Americas finest writersa powerfully affecting story spanning the twentieth century of a widow and her daughter and the nuns who serve their Irish-American community in Brooklyn. On a dim winter afternoon, a young Irish immigrant opens a gas tap in his Brooklyn tenement. He is determined to proveto the subway bosses who have recently fired him, to his pregnant wifethat "the hours of his life .

. . belonged to himself alone." In the aftermath of the fire that follows, Sister St. Saviour, an aging nun, a Little Nursing Sister of the Sick Poor, appears, unbidden, to direct the way forward for his widow and his unborn child.

In Catholic Brooklyn in the early part of the twentieth century, decorum, superstition, and shame collude to erase the mans brief existence, and yet his suicide, though never spoken of, reverberates through many livestesting the limits and the demands of love and sacrifice, of forgiveness and forgetfulness, even through multiple generations. Rendered with remarkable delicacy, heart, and intelligence, Alice McDermotts The Ninth Hour is a crowning achievement of one of the finest American writers at work today.
