Ashes of Fiery Weather is a debut novel about six generations of women in a family of firefighters, spanning from famine-era Ireland to Brooklyn a decade after 9/11. Poignant, wise, and immersive, Ashes of Fiery Weather is a tour de force in the tradition of Let the Great World Spin, one that explores the emotional wounds and ultimate resilience of those drawn to fire, as well as the many ways we search for each other, and the many ways we hope to be rescued. It has been named one of BookRiot’s 100 Must-Read New York City Novels and is one of Amazon.com’s Best Books of the month for September.
KATHLEEN DONOHOE grew up in Brooklyn, New York in a family of firefighters. She serves on the board of Irish American Writers & Artists, an organization dedicated to the celebration of Irish-American artists across all disciplines. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and son and she is writing her next novel.
