Ann Napolitano, Within Arm's Reach

Wihin Arm's Reach is a tender and perceptive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Hello Beautiful, about three generations of a large Catholic family jarred into crisis by an unexpected pregnancy. "This stunning . . . exquisite, skillfully written gem addresses serious issues-e.g., guilt vs. loyalty, the past vs. the present--[but] remains hopeful and includes ample doses of humor and wit."--Library Journal (starred review)

No one in my mother's family ever talks about anything that can be categorized as unpleasant or as having to do with emotions. . . .

This spellbinding novel by bestselling author Ann Napolitano is a poignant reminder of how connected we are to those we love, even when we cannot find the words to say it. The unforgettable story of three generations of an Irish American family, Within Arm's Reach is another rich and deeply satisfying novel from the author who captured the many dimensions of grief in Dear Edward and the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood in Hello Beautiful.
