“This year’s best book about family…Elegant…Captivating…A quiet masterpiece.  Saints for All Occasions is so unassuming that its artistry looks practically invisible.  In a simple style that never commits a flutter of extravagance, Sullivan draws us into the lives of the Raffertys, and in the rare miracle of fiction makes us care about them like they were our own family.  To read this engrossing novel is to become invested in these ‘entirely resilient and impossibly fragile’ people.  It’s a story that draws us deep into the essential qualities of motherhood and the compensations of faith.”—Ron Charles, The Washington Post
