Description

BONUS: This edition contains excerpts from Monica McInerney's Lola's Secret, At Home with the Templetons, Family Baggage, The Alphabet Sisters, Greetings from Somewhere Else, and Upside Down Inside Out. From internationally bestselling author Monica McInerney comes a captivating and charming new novel of family secrets, the loyalty of sisters, and the power of redemption. As a child, Maggie Faraday grew up in a lively, unconventional household with her young mother, four very different aunts, and eccentric grandfather. With her mother often away, her aunts took turns looking after her--until, just weeks before Maggie's sixth birthday, a shocking event changed everything. Twenty years later, Maggie is living alone in New York City when she receives a surprise visit from her grandfather Leo, who brings a revelation and a proposition: He's preparing a special gift for his daughters and needs Maggie's help. When the Faradays gather from all parts of the world to celebrate Christmas in July--a longstanding tradition--Maggie uncovers unexpected family history and learns that the women she thought she knew so intimately all have something to hide. Written in McInerney's trademark warm, heartfelt prose, The Faraday Girls is a sweeping and affecting family saga.
