Some brief overview of book

Meet Mimi Malloy A daughter of the Great Depression, Mimi was born into an Irish-Catholic brood of seven, and she has done her best to raise six beautiful daughters of her own. Now they're grown, and Mimi, a divorcée, is unexpectedly retired. But she takes solace in the comforts of her new life her apartment in the heart of Quincy, the occasional True Blue cigarette, and evenings with Frank Sinatra on the stereo and a highball in her hand.

Yet her phone is arguably the busiest in greater Bostonit rings "Day In, Day Out," as Ol' Blue Eyes would say. Her surviving sisters love to gab about their girlhood, while her eldest daughter, Cassandra, calls every morning to preach the gospel of assisted living. And when an MRI reveals that Mimi's brain is filled with black spotsareas of atrophy, her doctor saysit looks like she's destined to spend her days in "one of those storage facilities for unwanted antiques." Mimi knows her mind is (more or less) as sharp as ever, and she won't go down without a fight.

Yet as she prepares to take her stand, she stumbles upon an old pendant of her mother's and, slowly, her memory starts to returnspecifically, recollections of a shocking and painful childhood, including her sister who was sent away to Ireland and the wicked stepmother she swore to forget. Out of the ashes of Mimi's deeply troubled history, Julia MacDonnell gives us a redemptive story of the family bonds that break us and remake us. Mimi Malloy, At Last! is an unforgettable novel, alive with humor, unexpected romance, and the magic of hard-earned insight a poignant reminder that it's never too late to fall in love and that one can always come of age a second time.
