From Ireland, America, Germany and England, they have each left their homes and their old lives, when a shocking tragedy throws them unexpectedly together. 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.

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.
