The Blessings

By Elise Juska
Narrated by Therese Plummer / 8 hours 15 minutes

"Bursting with wise observations." -J. Courtney Sullivan, author of The Engagements and Maine
"Gleams like a jewel." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Stunning. . . Unique and unforgettable." -Glamour

Hailed by Stewart O'Nan as "deft and tender" and as one of the best books of 2014 by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Elise Juska's THE BLESSINGS is an extraordinary novel about an ordinary family. The Blessings rally around one another in times of celebration and those of sorrow, coming together for departures and arrivals, while its members harbor private struggles and moments of personal joy. College student Abby ponders homesickness in her first semester away from her Philadelphia home, while her cousin Stephen commits a petty act of violence that takes a surprising turn, and their aunt Lauren faces a crisis in her storybook marriage she could never have foreseen. Through the lens of one unforgettable family, this beautifully moving novel explores how our families define us and how we shape them in return.
