Summary
"Set in the late 1990's in Boston, a time when even the local Catholic Church is party to a scandal that threatens to unravel, Edward J. Delaney's intricately structured Broken Irish moves with the pace of a thriller, but delves more deeply into its lives. This engrossing novel about corruption and redemption gives sympathetic voice to the voiceless and offers an unflinching look at the workings of a community in the throes of change" -- p. [4] of cover
Summary
Follows the intertwining lives of six people in South Boston in the late 1990s--an alcoholic who has stopped drinking, the businessman who hires him as a ghostwriter, a widow and her teenage son, a young woman, and an aging priest
