In Providence, Rhode Island, everybody knows Nick Catini.
Street smart, with a quick wit and a larger-than-life
personality, Nick is the go-to guy, the owner of Catiniâ€™s
Hardware whoâ€™s there to score friends tickets to the big
game or fix his daughtersâ€™ problems. Every Sunday, Nick
presides over the family dinner, dishing out sauce and
advice with equal abandon. It is a time for family, for
grandchildren, for men watching football in the living
room while the women gossip and plan in the kitchen. It is
a time to remember what matters most in life. Sunday is
the best day of the week, and nobody can imagine it
But when Nick is suddenly gone, that is exactly what they
have to doâ€”go on without him. For his girlsâ€”Maria, Nina,
and Ginaâ€”it means learning to stand on their own feet
while arguing about whether or not their mother, Teresa,
can date again. For Teresa, it means trying somehow to
keep her family together, even as she wonders what it
would be like to find love again. And for her carefree
son, Johnny, it means making good on his fatherâ€™s last
request, a secret with the power to heal Johnnyâ€™s guarded
heart, if it doesnâ€™t destroy his family in the process.
Now, as the first leaves of fall stick to the wet streets
of New England, as the winter snow melts into the pastel
hues of spring, and everything seems new and different,
the Catinis will be tested and changed as never before.
For what seems like an insurmountable loss just may be the
beginning of the best part of their livesâ€¦ At once both
funny and heartwarming, with one of the most unique,
unforgettable narrators to come along in years, Every
Sunday is a warm, winning novel rich in hope, wisdom and
the surprising strength of second chances.
