    When Noel learns that his terminally ill former flame is pregnant with his child, he agrees to take guardianship of the baby girl once she's born. But as a single father battling demons of his own, Noel can't do it alone.

    Story

    I am a longtime Maeve Binchy fan, but I couldn't finish listening to this. The narrator was utterly distracting. Even while reading passages of dialogue from characters expressing clear delight, she sounded depressed. When she gave the young Australian man an upspeak, I turned it off for good. (Why did she do that? Does she consider that to be an integral part of the Aussie accent? I couldn't tell if it was an attempt at character development or just a jab at Australians.)

    The book itself was classic Binchy, with solid character development that leaves you constantly wondering what the characters are up to when you're not with them, and loads of characters from other books, a treat for those of us familiar with her work and hungry for an update from old friends. Although it's become a bit formulaic, I will continue to be a fan of her books - in print.
