The Gathering by Enne Enright The nine surviving children of the Hegarty clan are gathering in Dublin for the wake of their wayward brother, Liam, drowned in the sea. His sister, Veronica, collects the body and keeps the dead man company, guarding the secret she shares with him—something that happened in their grandmother’s house in the winter of 1968. "The writing is beautiful! I read two pages of The Gathering ad decided to choose this title for the book club. The topic is familiar: family dysfunction, a beloved sibling dying, secrets ready to be revealed." -- Kathy
