Blurb
Growing up in a small seaside town in the 1950s, Calre O'Brien and David Power shout their hearts' desires in the echo cave, praying that their destiny will lead them far away from the town in which they live.

Years later they meet again in Dublin, where David is studying medicine and Clare has won a scholarship to University College. But eventually Castlebay will draw them back and it is against a backdrop of empty grey skies, sea-spray and wind that this drama of ambition, betrayal and love finally reaches its turbulent conclusion.

Comment
Maeve Binchy manages to draw you into the story as she manages to tell the tale from different points of view. In the end you have the feeling, you know each character. You can imagine living in Castlebay yourself - even though this might not be something so very desirable... The ending was a bit too dramatic for my taste, though.

Quite a nice book, easy and pleasant to read, a good story, though nothing really special. This is the first Maeve Binchy book that I´ve read, and certainly not the last!
