9780544464056: Ashes of Fiery Weather

A debut novel about the passionate loves and tragic losses of six generations of women in a family of firefighters, spanning from famine-era Ireland to Brooklyn a decade after 9/11

"There isn’t anything in the world that hurts like a burn.” No one knows the pain of a fire more than the women of the Keegan/O’Reilly clan. Kathleen Donohoe’s stunning debut novel brings to life seven unsentimental, wry, and evocative portraits of women from a family of firefighters.   When we meet Norah — the first member of her family to move from Ireland to New York — she is a mother of three, contemplating her husband’s casket as his men give him a full fireman’s funeral, and faced with a terrible choice. Norah's mother-in-law, Delia, is stoic and self-preserving. Her early losses have made her keep her children close and her secrets closer. Eileen, Delia’s daughter, adopted from Ireland and tough-as-nails, yet desperate for a sense of belonging, is one of the first women firefighters in New York. It is through her eyes that we experience 9/11, blindsided by the events of that terrible day along with her.   Poignant, wise, and immersive, Ashes of Fiery Weather is a tour de force in the tradition of Let the Great World Spin, one that explores the emotional wounds and ultimate resilience of those drawn to fire, as well as the many ways we search for each other, and the many ways we hope to be rescued.

From the Inside Flap:

Kathleen Donohoe is so natural a storyteller, one hardly realizes the enormity of her tale until it s done and one looks up, surprised with satisfaction. Here is a rich, full novel that rolls like a song. Roger Rosenblatt, author ofMaking Toast

Firefighters walk boldly into battle against the most capricious of elements. Their daughters, mothers, sisters, and wives walk through the world with another kind of strength and another kind of sorrow, and no one knows that better than the women of the Keegan-O Reilly clan. InAshes of Fiery Weather, debut novelist Kathleen Donohoe takes us from famine-era Ireland to New York City a decade after 9/11, illuminating the passionate loves and tragic losses of six generations of women in a firefighting family.
When we meet Norah, she is a mother of three, contemplating her husband s casket as his men give him a full fireman s funeral, and faced with a terrible choice. Norah s mother-in-law, Delia, is stoic and self-preserving. Her early losses have made her keep her children close and her secrets closer. Eileen, Delia s daughter, adopted from Ireland and tough as nails, yet desperate for a sense of belonging, is one of the first women firefighters in New York. It is through her eyes that we experience the events of an otherwise picture-perfect fall day in 2001, and are blindsided along with her.
Here is a tour de force in the tradition ofLet the Great World Spin. Exquisitely attuned to the language, humor, and history of her own firefighting family, Kathleen Donohoe presents portraits of seven unforgettable women laying bare the many ways we search for each other, and the many ways we hope to be rescued.

With insight, compassion and unblinking honesty, she gives us theextraordinary lives ofordinary people.A star is born. Peter Quinn, author ofBanished Children of Eve

ThoughAshes of Fiery Weatherspans more than a century and two continents, there is an intimacy shared by the many women we meet in these pages, and that bond is the life force of the book. With Alice McDermott s eye for the nuances of Irish Catholic family life, and Dennis Lehane s gritty realism, Donohoe welcomes us into a world not many get to see. Mary Beth Keane, author ofFever
A remarkably authentic portrait, rich in memorable detail, with characters that come so vividly to life one forgets one is reading a novel. For a book to cover wide swaths of time and still feel vital at every point on its timeline is an impressive feat. Anyone Irish will face an uncanny recognition in these pages; everyone else will be enthralled meeting such captivating figures. Prepare to settle in. Matthew Thomas, author ofWe Are Not Ourselves
