Another summer is in full swing on the island of Roone, and preparations are underway for a big birthday party at the local hotel. But beneath the air of celebration, many of the islanders have their own struggles to contend with. Imelda, isolated by her recent heartbreak, has no memory of accepting a month-long Bed & Breakfast booking, but when a stranger turns up on her doorstep looking forward to his stay, she has little choice but to take him in. On the other side of the world, Tilly packs her bag for a visit to Roone to spend time with her sister Laura and her long-distance boyfriend Andy, wholly unaware of the trauma that awaits her there. Meanwhile, Laura is struggling to digest a startling confession when she finds her stepmother on her doorstep, young son in tow, having left her husband.

What the critics say

Praise for Roisin Meaney : A cracking yarn ... Meaney can excavate the core of our human failings and present it to us, mirror-like on the page ... Which makes her utterly credible, utterly authentic, utterly irresistible Irish Independent A real treat ... [Meaney's] ability to weave stories around a seemingly random cast is simply uncanny ... she wraps her readers in the company and comfort of ordinary strangers Sunday Independent Meaney weaves wonderful feel-good tales of a consistently high standard. And that standard rises with each book she writes Irish Examiner An addictive read with engaging, flawed characters and a unique writing flair that pulls you into the plot from the very beginning and keeps you entranced to the very end Books of All Kinds A thoughtful, engrossing read. Warm and insightful. Roisin Meaney is a skilful storyteller Sheila O'Flanagan It's easy to see why Roisin Meaney is one of Ireland's best-loved authors ... Should you spot this on a bookshelf, grab a copy Bleach House Library Roisin Meaney has once again done herself proud and written a book that should feature on many people's reading lists for this summer ... Do yourself a favour and buy this book Shaz's Book Blog A delightful read about relationships and the complexities associated with family life ... A cosy read for any time of the year, be it in your beach bag or sitting curled up in front of the fire Swirl and Thread This book is like chatting with a friend over a cup of tea - full of gossip and speculation, and all the things that make life interesting Irish Mail on Sunday The perfect example of an author at the pinnacle of her career Meath Chronicle
