review 1: Set in the Irish town of Avalon, we see how the lives of four women are interwoven as they help each other deal with their pasts and look with hope to the future. Danae, is a transplant and the town's postmistress who has secrets of her own that are revealed with the help of her niece, Mara. Tess grew up in the big house on the hill that now belongs to someone else. Her sister Suki fled Avalon but returns with problems of her own. Read this book to see how friendship and love can make all the difference.
review 2: This was my first book of Cathy Kelly's, and it will not be the last. I am not sure why I haven't read her until now; I've had several of her books in my possession for some time. In the aftermath of losing Maeve Binchy, and seeking authors who migh
... moret (possibly? hopefully? somehow? magically?) write like Binchy, my research led me to Kelly. It has not been a let-down. I sank within the pillowy comfort of Kelly's prose, the way she writes was/is definitely similar to Binchy's, and yet retains its own simplistic uniqueness. Quaint, warm, simple, emotionally evocative and sigh-inducing is what her writing and this book has been. The perfect - and contrastedly balancing - companion to an otherwise hectic phase of life. I am actually glad that I have not read her before now. Somehow I have that special niche prolonged in knowing that even after Maeve Binchy's passing there remains Cathy Kelly to read. less
