Summary
This is the bittersweet, lovable and very human story of an Irish-Catholic family on Long Island, told through the eyes of its youngest members. The children's weekly visits to Brooklyn with their mother transport them to a world of memory, loss, recrimination, and eternal repartee. Here they observe their grandmother, "Momma", the stoic matriarch: Aunt Agnes, a seemingly sophisticated career woman; Aunt Veronica, who somehow remains a shy and wounded child; and Aunt May, an ebullient ex-nun who is surprised to find romance in her middle age
