Norah is the daughter of a famous Irish actress. Katherine O’Dell has met with success but at 45 she’s struggling. Her good days are over, and Norah becomes not just a daughter but must keep picking up the pieces as her mother sinks into alcoholism, madness and violence. And yet, Norah keeps loving her mother. Of all the people, real and fictional in the book, I find Norah the most interesting. The ending was without resolution. I wonder if that was intentional. Is there a resolution to a relationship of mother and daughter?
