Contents: The story of a Brooklyn-born woman's life --
her family, her neighborhood, her daily trials and triumphs, from childhood to old age. Our first glimpse of Marie is as a child: a girl in glasses waiting on a Brooklyn stoop for her beloved father to come home from work. The moves on to Marie's first heartbreak and her eventual marriage; her brother's brief stint as a Catholic priest, subsequent loss of faith, and eventual breakdown; the Second World War; her parents' deaths; the births and lives of Marie's children; the changing world of her Irish-American enclave in Brooklyn.
Responsibility: Alice McDermott.
