9780544944794: Ashes of Fiery Weather

One of Brooklyn magazine’s 100 Books to Read for the Rest of 2016
One of Book Riot’s 100 Must-Read New York City Novels


“A remarkably authentic portrait, rich in memorable detail, with characters that come so vividly to life one forgets one is reading a novel . . . 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, New York Times best-selling author of We Are Not Ourselves

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. In Ashes 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.
Here is a tour de force in the tradition of Let the Great World Spin. Exquisitely attuned to the language, humor, and history of her own firefighting family, Donohoe presents portraits of seven unforgettable characters—laying bare the many ways we search for each other, and the many ways we hope to be rescued.
 
“A stunning and intimate portrayal of four generations of New York City firefighters . . . Extraordinary. Ashes of a Fiery Weather somehow manages to be part Alice McDermott, part Denis Leary, and ultimately a worthy addition to the canon of great New York ethnic novels.” Irish America

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.

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.
