I just started reading We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas. It’s a story about Eileen Tumulty, the daughter of Irish immigrants, and takes place in the Woodside neighborhood of Queens, New York, beginning in the 1940s. From an early age, Eileen believes she deserves something more than what she has. By the time she marries, her resolve to break into a better life is the only thing that drives her, a goal her husband Ed does not share…
That’s where I am at the moment and I’m looking forward to the rest!
