"Nuala Anne McGrail is many things: wife, mother, world-class singer, and a great wit. In the latest novel from Andrew M. Greeley, the irresistible problem-solver from Connemara warns her loyal, loving husband, Dermot Michael Coyne, that something evil is hanging over their family. But who could want to do them harm?" "The suspects are many. Nuala Anne and her teenage daughter have taken up taekwondo in an effort to fight off schoolyard bullies who have been creating chaos within the parish. And the Coynes' nanny, Julie, is being courted by a quiet young lawyer in an Irish tweed hat who has secrets about his own family. Meanwhile, Dermot pores over a memoir of another woman from Galway, an immigrant haunted by lingering spirits who arrived on America's shores after the death of her family during the famine and went on to become one of Chicago's finest doctors.""Tensions rise when a vicious attack on Julie's suitor brings old-country feuds and new-world politics into sharp focus. But even centuries cannot keep two fey women from communicating, and the voices of the past have much to teach. But for Dermot Michael and his beautiful wife, the fierce determination to love and make the world a better place will be put to the test when the fabric of their family faces real danger."--BOOK JACKET.
