As a child, Elizabeth White was sent from her war-torn London home to a safer life in the small Irish town of Kilgarret. It was there, in the crowded, chaotic O'Connor household, that she met Aisling-who would become her very best friend, sharing her pet kitten and secretly teaching her the intricacies of Catholicism. Aisling's boldness brought Elizabeth out of her proper shell; later, her support carried Elizabeth through the painful end of her parents' chilly marriage. In return, Elizabeth's friendship helped Aisling endure her own unsatisfying marriage to a raging alcoholic. Through the years, they always believed they could overcome any conflict, conquer any hardship. They believed they could survive anything, as long as they had each other. Now they're about to find out if they were right.
This is a wonderful Maeve Binchy Book, I couldnt put it down. I cried several times while reading it. This is probably one of my favorite books.
Like all of Maeve's books, I did not want to see this one end! I wanted to know more about Aisling and Elizabeth and everything that will happen to them as they move on into the next chapter of their lives. You can't help but feel like you know everyone in Binchy's books, and her characters are just wonderful.
