But when Patrick O'Neil arrives from the States with grand plans to turn the ruins of Fernscourt into Ireland's finest hotel, ripples begin to appear on the surface calm of this backwater. Brimming with speculation about the wealthy, charming American, the little community wonders how he will affect their lives.
Unfortunately, some will learn all too painfully that their peaceful world is about to be changed irreversibly and that new friendships, passions and tragedies will destroy the old Mountfern forever.

We found that the dramatization of the story was really off-putting. We love Maeve Binchy but would rather it had been a straight read through.
Probably David Soul would be great on a straight read through.
