Anna Solomon

Anna Solomon by Beowulf Sheehan

1917: Privileged, musical Bea Haven finds herself with an unexpected newborn right when she’s prepping to leave for Radcliffe. She abandons the newborn beneath a pear tree, knowing the child will be found by the Irish trespassers who pillage her uncle’s orchard each year. But Bea suffers a breakdown, marries a gay man, and gets swept up in the women’s temperance movement while the newborn (Lucy Pear) joins a large clan of working-class Irish Catholics. With a Victorian sweep, Anna Solomon’s second novel crests when Bea and Lucy’s adopted mother are unexpectedly thrown together.
