But I loved it. Both novels have main characters that are consumed by guilt. But unlike Cal Brenneman who mans up and lives his life the best he can, regardless of how he fails to protect members of his family, both Adam Connor and Addie Harris find themselves incapable of rising above much of anything. Especially Adam. But then again… well, it’s very difficult to offer much information about either Adam or Addie without spoiling three of the most heartfelt moments in the book. I can say, however, that despite the dark paths these two often find themselves on, you can’t help finding yourself emotionally caught up in their struggles. You like these people despite their flaws. And you hope that somehow they will finally meet again. The devastation on Christmas morning, the trial three months later, the stupid and dangerous things each of them do, all become steps along the way to an ending that is both satisfying and credible.
As much as I liked the two main characters, however, my favorite character is Jeannie, the old woman Adam befriends on the plane to Dublin. An early Alzheimer’s sufferer she has made her getaway from a nursing home in the States so she can return to her native Ireland to die without forcing her children to watch her pathetic decline. She and Adam have two more encounters before the novel ends and each meeting not only makes her a more interesting character, but adds another layer to Adam and his understanding of himself.
From I-80 to Galway Bay will grab you by your emotions and take you on an unforgettable trip from a Christmas morning tragedy in Pennsylvania to a nursing home beside Galway Bay seven months later. When you finish turning the last page, you’ll find this trip was well worth the taking.
