“An irresistible tale.”—Elle
“Engrossing.”—Wall Street Journal
“Difficult to put down!”—Denver Post
“One of Binchy’s best.”—Kirkus Reviews
I read this a number of years ago and it enjoyed it. It involves a house swap with characters from Dublin coming to the U.S. and vice versa. Binchy was a premiere writer of women’s fiction.
