This is the thrid in a series that begins with Tara Road and continues with Scarlet Feather. The story is more enjoyable if you read them in order. This and the others in the series continue the tale of Binchy's wonderful, all too realistic characters. Please give her books a try, you'll be glad you did!

I'd give it more stars if I could! Binchy is a credit to Irish romance! It was entertaining, engrosing and fun to read. I felt like I was part of the lifes of the characters.

Quentins is a Dublin restaurant that has a thousand stories to tell. Ella Brady thinks that a documentary about Quentins is just the thing to interest people, but as she researches these stories she discovers that not all stories should be told. I really liked this story but the plot was a bit too contrived. I give it an A!

These are characters you can really sink your soul into! Ms. Binchy is a genius at developing characters and stories you can really care about and want to visit with, again. Quentins Restaurant - past, present and future - is really the hub of the story. Some of the people in this book are from previous books.
Ella Brady has skimmed through her life until a very untidy relationship "hits the fan" and so much is revealed, not only about her character but also the lives of people near and dear to her. The story follows Ellas' very untidy passage through life to become a real woman of character.
I love Ms. Binchys' works because she has a real talent for letting you see yourself in her characters.

Another great Binchy read. Ties up many loose ends from other books, too.
