Item description for The Altruist by Walter Keady...

Eilis is a feisty young woman, growing up in an Ireland that has changed significantly since the days of her grandmother's youth. But some things do not change: Eilis, too, flouts conventional mores, especially when she decides to have a baby out of wedlock like her grandmother before her. Family fireworks, courtroom drama, and romance ensue.

Written with Keady's characteristic charm and graceful humor, The Altruist is a moving and forceful novel of the heart.
