Binchy's typical story with intimate and intrinsic descriptions of characters and daily life. One of her longer books but will hold you til the end.

Kate Ryan and her husband have pub in an Irish village with plenty of dreams but that all changes when an American millionaire comes to town with his irresistible charm.
Maeve Binchy always has such interwoven characters which are also beautifully drawn with great depth.

This book was really interesting, although I enjoy all Maeve Binchy books...she wrote a fascinating story about a group of young people and how they all related to their families and the small community they grew up in there in Ireland. It had a surprising conclusion and although the story is lengthy, it is well worth your time spent reading this book.

wow. this was a great book took me a long time to read it as my life has been busy but I was so glad when I got back to the book it had so many things going on and they were all so realistic it was a heart breaker yet it was very mesmerizing I had to finish it and was very pleased with this one

Binchy is one of my favorite authors, although some of her books are better than others. This one ranks at the top of the list along with Tara Road, Copper Beech, and the Evening Class.
