Vacation Review: Saints for All Occasions by J. Courtney Sullivan

Coming to you from the car en route from Tennessee home to Wisconsin!


An absolutely glorious commentary on motherhood, marriage, grief, faith and forgiveness. As a mother and daughter, I made note of so many passages and thoughts that hit me especially hard, particularly those that pertained to children actually knowing a mother’s whole self. This isn’t a funny novel, but there is certainly wit, and as it is buried in grief and loss, it hits you even harder and catches you by surprise. A beautiful family saga that makes you ache for the victims of words unsaid throughout generations. Highly highly recommend.
