Description: The Ninth Hour is a luminous, deeply humane novel about three generations of an Irish immigrant family in 1940s and 1950s Brooklyn – for those who love Colm Tóibín, Anne Enright and Anne Tyler.

On a dim winter afternoon in a Brooklyn tenement, a young Irish immigrant unhooks the oven gas, and inhales.
In the aftermath of the fire that follows, Sister St. Savior, an ageing nun appears, unbidden, to direct the way forward for his widow and unborn child.

Beautifully written, heart-wrenching and funny...Sunday Times
