We Are The Brennans

By Tracey Lange


271 pages

What’s it about? When Sunday Brennan finds herself in the hospital, and charged with a DUI, she finally makes the tough decision to go home again.  Returning to her close knit Irish-Catholic family will not be without complications- but it is home. What did it make me think about? Families and what good stories they make. Should I read it? This was a really good debut novel.  Tracey Lange writes a very readable family drama.  It is full of omissions, secrets, and complicated relationships- but doesn’t that make for a good story?  As in all family dramas you often think, “who would do that?”, but just go with it. Quote- ” ‘Okay.  I’ll come home.’ A certain comfort came with making the commitment.  She couldn’t back out after that.”
