Cross of Ivy (Kobo eBook)
Here is a story that explodes the pristine image of the academic 'ivory tower' and invites us to be a fly on the wall as we discover, bit by bit, that all is not quite what it seems at this fictional ivy league university. Cross of Ivy tells the story of two intertwining family sagas - the Irish working-class O'Malley's of Boston and the gentrified oil rich Trudeau's of Louisiana plantation fame, with all the color, flavor, traditions, prejudices, and conflicts most families prefer to keep behind closed doors. Those secrets often don't end at home or stay at home. The unraveling of these two families' secrets comes full circle in the rarefied atmosphere of Cross University.
