The Blessings

Elise Juska

When John Blessing dies and leaves behind two small children, the loss reverberates across his extended family for years to come. His young widow, Lauren, finds solace in her large clan of in-laws. Other family members struggle with dementia, divorce, and infertility in the wake of John's death. Through departures and arrivals, weddings and reunions, The Blessings reveals the interior worlds of the members of a close-knit Philadelphia Irish-Catholic family and the rituals that unite them. A touching family drama from the author of One for Sorrow, Two for Joy (2007).
