Small town where people just get on with their day to day lives. Then the hot shot from America arrives. How will they react to his plans for the community and how he aims to change it.

Easy enough read and typical Maeve Binchy style. Lots of great characters.

This was an easy read, and I love it that Maeve Binchy is very kind to her characters and you do warm to them easily. The book was full of all kinds of sidelines and goings on throughout, and it kept me entertained on my lunch breaks and train journeys.

The book arrived two days ago. I'm quite busy at the moment, so maybe I have to send the book forward without reading it.

She's very good at depicting characters. Many of them (in which I wouldn't put Kate) are rather pathetic. It's incredible how Patrick can be both generous and perfectly selfish. Sometimes you must leave the past lie undisturbed. A good story but it could have been made a little shorter.

Journal Entry 16 by wingBookworm-ladywing at Madrid, Madrid Spain on Friday, April 05, 2013
I have really enjoyed this novel.
It took me a while to get into it, as is usually a case when I am introduced to many characters... but after some pages, each character acquired their own personality and voice, and they seem to be old-time friends!
Kate and her husband and children, as well as the O'Neills and the whole population of the village became so familiar to me, that it was hard to put the novel down after finishing it. There were also some unexpected twists in the plot, which I won't give up here.
Ms Binchy (see pic) has done it again for me, I find she was a warm and excellent writer, capable of keeping us readers interested in everything she wrote.
Thanks for sharing this, Inver! It will go to a Sweepstakes Winner who has it in her WishList; I am sure she will enjoy it as much as I did. :)
