Boys fighting were just as common as corner shops and beer joints in 1979 Irish-Catholic South Buffalo.
When Callahan O’Connor sucker punches her boyfriend Paul, young Molly Shea’s fate is set. In spite of her best intentions she is drawn to his imponderable grin and charisma, falling for him the way stars fall from the heavens.
When a summer evening turns the tides of their adolescent desire on the shores of Lake Erie they consummate their secret passion.
However, star crossed lovers never find their paths easy, and a winter of desolation and isolation lie ahead for Molly until the dynamic Teresa helps her see beyond the confines of her parochial neighborhood.
But when Callahan suddenly becomes free their written in the stars romance soars to unsustainable heights only to level out in a spectacular Shakespearian, “wide right,” Buffalo kind of way.
