""Mimi Malloy, At Last!" is funny, wise, and devastating. Julia MacDonnell writes with tender insight, letting Mimi's old memories crack the defense of humor, allowing the buried truths of her family and childhood to shine through. It's very Irish. . . I loved it." --"New York Times" bestselling author Luanne Rice"

""A love letter to sisterhood, Frank Sinatra, late-in-life romance, and the enduring ties of family.

"Additional Praise for Julia MacDonnell:

"Julia MacDonnell writes with a psychological savvy and family wisdom few others have. Her words vibrate to the thought waves between sisters, mothers and daughters, parents and children, wives and husbands. Her stories tug at a single thread until a whole fabric unravels, and then they work the miracle of reweaving."--Molly Peacock, author of "The Paper Garden"

"Julia MacDonnell's "Mimi Malloy, At Last! "is a triumph and a delight! Mimi is a gal you'll take into your heart--Irish and Catholic to her core, at once steely-eyed and unsentimental about a tragic childhood and even tougher breaks experienced as a mother in working-class Quincy, Mass., raising six daughters and dealing with a charming cheat of a husband. Divorced and down-sized, Mimi treasures her solitude, but when troubling memories--and an unexpected suitor--show up, she is able to see through the mists of time to find a clear-eyed vision of forgiveness and acceptance. This is a novel of such heart and hope--and, yes, humor. I wouldn't trust anybody who couldn't fall for "Mimi Malloy, At Last!.""--Mary Kay Andrews, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Ladies' Night

""I love Mimi! Such a feisty, endearing, hilarious character--yet also very vulnerable as the threads of her painful Irish-American past begin to unravel. Julia MacDonnell's fluent writing beautifully observes the iniquities of old age and the complexities of family. But also the benefits of both. What a wonderful book."--Hilary Boyd, author of" Thursdays in the Park

"Humorous and poignant... MacDonnell captures perfectly the family dynamics between sisters, mothers, and daughters, as if she were sitting in on their gab sessions, taking copious notes. For readers who enjoy Maeve Binchy and Rosamunde Pilcher, this is a highly engaging family chronicle, with a healthy dose of Irish history laced in as well."--"Booklist

"It has been 20 years since Julia MacDonnell wrote her first novel, "A Year of Favor." But readers will find her highly entertaining and heartfelt second novel, "Mimi Malloy, At Last!, " well worth the wait....MacDonnell truly shines in creating a cast of unforgettable characters who struggle to forgive each other, spinning a story that recalls "The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," though with a bit more of an edge.
