I could see We Are The Brennan’s made into a family drama movie. It held all the elements of drama: secrets, reunions, heartbreaks and facing the past to move forward to the future. 29 year old Sunday Brennan ran from her Irish Catholic family and past to move across the country and an unfortunate series of events has her heading back home to face what she left behind. Her family’s business is failing, her brother’s lives are going haywire and a past love interest re-emerges with questions left unanswered.
I liked how the story unfolded and the author did a great job making the characters and their circumstances relatable. From multiple view-points, we are able to understand each character more in depth and makes for a well rounded conclusion. Readers who enjoyed Mary Beth Keene’s Ask Again, Yes - I highly recommend this debut novel.
