About this deal

There's trouble at the Kennedy Farm - the dog is barking, and there's not a sight to be seen of matriarch and prominent businesswoman Ursula Kennedy or her farmer husband James. They were also very strict about money, and whatever money we had to spend on ourselves was earned or saved from birthdays or special occasions. Sometimes, rather than working on themselves, people will channel their anger and confusion into hurting others, even with small things like names. The last name Buttigieg (pronounced “BOOT-uh-jej”) is Maltese (from a small group of islands in the middle of the Mediterranean). Told through different family members in different chapters, we readers start to piece together the story, with a big reveal at the end.

I believe this is a first offering from the author and I am glad it is doing so well, just get and editor next time. But then you would hear the mice tearing into the Pop-Tarts left out on the counter and try your best not to squirm while they feasted a few feet from your head, which I suppose wasn’t seen as particularly “manly” either.What starts out as a simple accident, leads to all manner of secrets tumbling out, and I was there for every single one of them. They are generous, loving, hardworking people who love their friends, their community, and their work. And it reminds us that by telling our stories and showing up for one another, we can empower others to find value in telling their stories as well. And leave out the middle-aged adultery plotline… most middle-aged women are far too tired to cope with a husband *and* a lover!

Open the front door, and Brisco would run outside, grab the newspaper from the mailbox, and bring it back into the house.The catch was so impressive that Uncle Gene had to set his line down and come take a picture of it on my disposable, waterproof camera. When the alarm is raised, Ursula's daughter in law Kate and son Rob soon have their worst fears confirmed when two bodies are found in the slurry pit.

I pride myself on having inherited my father’s excellent sense of direction, but I wasn’t sure walking miles alone through the woods in the dark was the wisest choice (again, I was thirteen). As a father myself now, looking back at everything he was trying to do for everyone, I realize he must’ve been exhausted all the time. The sound of applause filled the television studio, and I stepped out into the bright lights, all cameras pointed at me. Seeing the gun cases set out on the picnic table made me nervous, and although my dad has gifted me a few guns for birthdays over the years, they remain in his safe back home. Far more concerned with the why than the how, McDonagh expertly unpicks and reforms the tangled webs of a complicated family history in a page turning debut.It’s a great read, authentic and unapologetic in a way that will mean a lot to an entire generation of kids who will inevitably, wonderfully, see themselves in him. And I agree about women in high-profile jobs who seem to be constantly distracted by romance, especially once they are out of their early 20s. Ursula is not known for her gentle treatment of family members either, her eldest son Mark having committed suicide a few years before his parents' deaths, and her sensitive daughter Christina left irrevocably damaged by Ursula's lack of maternal warmth. In a very mom way, she decorated our kitchen with those wall hangings that stated things like IT IS AROUND THIS TABLE WE UNDERSTAND BEST THE WARMTH OF BEING TOGETHER, and there is always a nice-smelling candle burning in the house. Chasten Buttigieg is a transformative political spouse, just as his husband was a transformative candidate.
