Why do I have it? I love Maeve Binchy as an author and have read and enjoyed several books by this author in the past.
As a child, Elizabeth White was sent from her war-torn home in England to the Irish countryside and the town of Kilgarret. There she met the charming Aisling O’Connor and Aisling’s bustling and rather large family. The two girls struck up a firm and fast friendship – one which carried them each through the darkest times of their lives.
Elizabeth had to deal with the breakup of her parents chilly marriage and Elizabeth was there for Aisling all through her marriage to a raging alcoholic. They always believe that they can overcome anything as long as their friendship lasts. They are about to test that theory.
I really enjoyed this book and it is not only a 5 but a 5,000! I give it an A+!
