Fiona is a young nurse, trying to make her family understand her need to follow her own path. Thomas desperately misses his young son and fears that his ex-wife will come between them. Elsa abruptly left her career as a television presenter, but someone from her past refuses to let her go. And shy, quiet David is determined to make a stand against his overbearing father. With these four is Andreas, the taverna owner, who badly misses the son who left home nine years ago and has never returned. NIGHTS OF RAIN AND STARS is the story of one summer and four people, each with a life in turmoil.

This was the 2nd book i read by Maeve Binchy...(looking forward to reading all the earlier ones). Very interesting and enjoyable,especially because of the differing backgrounds and cultures of the main characters.

I am a true admirer and avid reader of Maeve Binchy, but this book just doesn't match the level of quality as her other books. I have read all her books and have truly loved each and every one until this one. It was ok, but not as page-turning as the others were. I would still read it if you love Binchy books, but just don't have your standards as high for this one.
