At twenty-three, Jamus Cork's plans are simple--graduate college, stay in New York City, and write. But those plans change when his parents are suddenly killed and he finds himself the guardian of his little brother, Nick. Jamus ends up back in the Boston neighborhood where he grew up, with a crying toddler on his knee and the challenge of building a new life for himself and the boy. Jamus somehow finds a way to navigate the ups and downs of single parenting, but over a decade of raising Nick, Jamus never truly overcomes his struggles with loneliness and the guilt he feels as the sole survivor of the crash that killed his parents. That changes when he meets bookishly handsome Sean Malloy. There's a spark between the two men, but both must face down their own private demons to find love in the Irish enclave of South Boston.

My only fault with the book is that is ended, it is absolutely an amazing read. I laughed, I loved, I cried and I cannot stop thinking of these characters. I feel like they have become a part of me and I find myself missing them, desperately. The story is beautifully written and I was captivatated from the start and I couldn't put it down. The relationships, the family dynamics, the characters, the ups and downs and the end - oh the end, it is just wonderful. I feel the author chose his words carefully and with great thought and beautifully wove together a book that I would say is one of the best books I have read in many, many years. Just lovely and unexpected and so much more to the story that what you would expect from the overview. Thank you Mr. Bardsley for a beautiful read and I do so hope that there will be a sequel or someone makes it a movie, it would be a beautiful movie. I recommend this book in the highest regard and it is appropriate young adults as well.
