Jacob of Abbington Pickets by , Summary

Just before the turn of the 20th century, Jacob Hudson grows up on a farm in the Canadian prairies, near the small village of Abbington Pickets. As a child, he witnesses an incident that scars him deeply and leaves him unable to trust or understand his strong, proud, and often harsh father. Shy Jacob grows into a handsome, talented young man still carrying a dark secret. Just when Jacob thinks he will never be able to follow his dreams, he meets Abigail, a beautiful, boastful English girl with a chip on her shoulder. His heart falls wide open, but she doesn’t give him the time of day. Unable to bear his father’s injustices, Jacob eventually leaves to work at a local ranch, where he finds kinship, acceptance, vocation, and—possibly—love. When circumstances change, Jacob moves into the village. Despite the many wonderful things his new life brings, his existence in Abbington Pickets is not an easy one. Will this kind and virtuous young man ever find happiness? Will his relationship with his father find resolution? Jacob’s compelling story of loss, perseverance, and faith unfolds amidst the background of 19th-20th century rural Canada.

It was the best time in Jacob Hudson’s life. He was about to marry Abigail Rodgers, his best friend and love of his life. Together they would build their dream home and start a family. Jacob’s carpentry business was successful and he was closer than ever to his siblings.

When his faith is tested, can he continue to trust that God will never fail?

The Mammy by Brendan O'Carroll Summary

"Mammy" is what Irish children call their mothers and The Mammy is Agnes Browne—a widow struggling to raise seven children in a North Dublin neighborhood in the 1960s. Popular Irish comedian Brendan O'Carroll chronicles the comic misadventures of this large and lively family with raw humor and great affection. Forced to be mother, father, and referee to her battling clan, the ever-resourceful Agnes Browne occasionally finds a spare moment to trade gossip and quips with her best pal Marion Monks (alias "The Kaiser") and even finds herself pursued by the amorous Frenchman who runs the local pizza parlor. Like the novels of Roddy Doyle, The Mammy features pitch-perfect dialogue, lightning wit, and a host of colorful characters. Earthy and exuberant, the novel brilliantly captures the brash energy and cheerful irreverence of working-class Irish life. Now a major motion picture starring Anjelica Huston
