    Those who enjoy the novels of Colm Tóibín are likely to similarly enjoy this story about the women of an Irish immigrant family in 1940s and 1950s Brooklyn. The setting, characters and themes in The Ninth Hourare reminiscent of those in Tóibín’s Brooklyn, and both Tóibín and Alice McDermott have precise and elegant writing styles. But although Tóibín is good at writing about women, McDermott, author of the National Book Award–winning Charming Billy, is better. This moving novel about faith, love, female resilience and what makes a family is a major achievement, one that is rich in lyrical prose, wonderful characters and profound musings on the human condition.
