From Ireland to Newfoundland, from New Bedford to New York, Wake imagines a world where we are a composite of each other's memories and all the memories that predate us, our parents' memories and their parents' memories. Through stories and the act of remembering, three generations of an Irish American family are relived as the children excavate their parents' stories and come to a truer undestanding of the family's history. Down on her luck and uninspired by her own future prospects, Deirdre Sullivan moves into her family home which has been deserted since her Father (esteemed writer, Dan Sullivan) died nearly two years ago. Hundreds of miles away, Deirdre's grief-stricken brother, Kevin, has taken to traveling the world over trying to recreate the adventures he imagines his Father had as a young man. Kevin lands in the peculiar city of St. John's, Newfoundland, where he vaguely recollects his family has some history. When he meets a beguiling young librarian, Molly Cartwright, he begins to unlock the truth about his family's connection to the island. Meanwhile, 35 years earlier . . . their father, Dan, is going through a very similar struggle as he tries to understand his own mother and her life before he was born. Shattering his sense of identity, she shares with him secrets from her past so volatile they drive him to write an alternative family history. When a prominent magazine offers to publish Dan's story, he must decide what he values more: his mother's respect, or the respect of the world at large.
