Another Maeve Binchy book. She cannot write a poor book! The story of several vacationers and how they come together in Greece and how they react to one another and to the townspeople and become a "family" of their own. Problems seem similar across the board for people who cannot recognize the same thing in themselves. They learn from one another and it's a feel good book. A very easy read. Keeps your interest. You'll like it.
This is one of my all time favorite books. I haven't swapped my copy because I have been loaning it to my friends. It is set in Greece which is unusual for this author. I hated for the book to end and felt like I was a part of the story.
