Since it’s Mother’s Day on the weekend, why not read a novel with a matriarch as the main character?
The Green Road is a story of four Irish siblings who leave their mother, Rosaleen, and their small hometown in west Ireland to start new lives in big cities across the globe. When the children return one Christmas, they find out their mother has sold the family home. The children feel their past is being erased and sold off along with their childhood home.
