Summary
Eileen Tumulty grows up in the mostly Irish neighborhood of Woodside, Queens, in a four-story building by the elevated 7 train. It's the postwar boom: her father drives a Schaefer truck and her mother works behind the counter at Loft's, a fancy confectioner's on 42nd Street. They both drink heavily. From an early age, Eileen must navigate the turmoil of her parents' home--and she wishes that she lived somewhere else. Eileen comes to believe that some places contain more happiness than ordinary places. She sets her sights on Bronxville, New York and an American Dream is born. Driven by this longing, she places her stock and her love in Ed Leary, a handsome young scientist, and with him begins a family. Over the years Eileen encourages her husband to want more: a better job, better friends, a better house. It slowly becomes clear that his growing reluctance is part of a deeper, more incomprehensive psychological shift, and when Ed is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's, the foundation on which Eileen has built her life begins to crumble. Eileen, Ed, and their son Connell struggle to accept that the lives they have imagined may be different from the hands they have been dealt
