The Auburn Public Library hosts an author discussion tonight at 6:30pm. Local author Jane F. McCarthy will discuss “All the Rest of Her Days”, her new book about love, loss and guilt, set in Massachusetts and Ireland from the 1950s to the 1990s.
From the publisher’s synopsis:
“All the Rest of Her Days contains layers of love, loss and guilt, which affects the lives of two families and three generations from the 1950s to the 1990s from Massachusetts to Ireland. It will sadden you, excite you and make you weep for the characters and rejoice in their successes. Sixteen year old Maggie is pregnant and the fabric of her family is shredded. Fear grips them. The secret must be buried and lies need to be told. Maggie is forced to relinquish her son for adoption. She is bereft and never forgets him. Thirty years later she receives a phone call from him. Stunned, she must decide to see him or continue on with her life without him. This novel is rich with detail and the characters are memorable all the way to the last page.”
