Notes:
It's 1961. The Burns family is celebrating yet another disastrous Thanksgiving and a 17 year-old Alice can't take it anymore. After years spent chasing the affections of the people who are supposed to love her unconditionally, Alice is beginning to realise that, though you can't choose your family, you can choose your future, and Alice sees her future far away from her dysfunctional family and the doldrums of small-town life. As she embarks on a journey that will take her through college, heartbreak, and self-discovery, Alice must learn to stand on her own two feet in the great wide open. But no matter how much distance she covers, the past is never far behind. And after years of running, Alice must stand and face the truth. Because sometimes, to move forward, we have to go back.

Alice visits her younger brother in prison where he unburdens a big secret that has been kept for years and so begins an epic family saga starting with Alice as a teenager, college years, Dublin and back to NY. It takes in the Pinochet coup in Chile, the troubles in Ireland and Reagan presidential years. Family secrets, relationships, how they treat one another, the secrets they keep and the lies they tell are the backbone of the story. For me, it ebbed and flowed, parts worked well, I particularly enjoyed the spell in Dublin,and the ending was also well paced. I felt some parts were slow and it was overlong,
