Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
From the author of the critically acclaimed "The Monk Downstairs" comes a family epic laced with authenticity, wit and unforgettable characters. Liz O'Reilly has a husband in Vietnam, four kids under the age of 12 (and one on the way), and a burgeoning crush on the family priest, who struggles with his own place in the post-Vatican II Catholic Church.

It's summer 1967 and Mike O'Reilly's just shipped out to Vietnam. Liz O'Reilly is trying to keep it all together for their four kids: 6-year-old Deb-Deb (who believes she is an otter); 8-year-old Angus; Kathie (who at age 9 helps to integrate the local Blue Bird troop with her best friend Temperance), and 11-year-old Danny - the spitting image of Mike.

While Mike is off fighting 'his' war, Liz struggles with her own desires and yearnings - to pick up the theatre career she abandoned when Danny was born, to care for the four children she loves fiercely yet also occasionally resents, to leave the back door unlocked so she always has an escape route. While set during the conflict in Vietnam, Farrington's newest novel captures the other side of any war - that of the war at home and the careening emotions of the spouses and families left behind.


Review:
"Throughout Lizzie's War, Farrington has an ear for the changing time signatures and keys of uncomfortable, revealing moments."--New York Newsday
