Carry the one

by Carol Anshaw.  Monday March 6th 7:00 pm

 

When the three Kenney siblings add themselves up, they always have to carry the one. The "one" is a young girl whose life came to an untimely end when the siblings, Nick, Alice, and Carmen, struck and killed her while driving home inebriated from Carmen's wedding. From that moment on, the tragedy plays a significant, continuous role in all of their lives. Over time, the siblings face many twists and turns, all with the memory of the "one" looming in the shadows. Nick, who was most affected by the accident, struggles for years with drug addiction and a tumultuous relationship with girlfriend Olivia, who was behind the wheel on the fateful night. Carmen's tainted marriage ultimate fails and, in response, she dedicates herself to charity work. Alice, a painter, moves through a string of lesbian relationships and obsessively paints portraits of the girl whose life she helped to end. Throughout her work and the ups and downs of life for the Kenneys, author Carol Anshaw demonstrates how a single moment can come to define a lifetime. Books & Authors
