Beginning in County Mayo, Ireland, the fifteen short stories in The Best of It lay bare the complexities and contradictions, the lights and shadows that plague the immigrant Quinn family as they move from the old and embrace the new. Included in the stories are Bea’s attempts to remain true to her religious beliefs in a loveless marriage, Timeen’s patriotic fervor which leads him with Patton’s Army into the Black Forest, John who thought he had left behind forever the “dyin” that so darkened his childhood.

Bridget, in the second generation, becomes Sister Bridget whose life in the convent mirrors the aspirations and disappointments of her forebears.
