Publisher's Summary

When Jenny McKinstry is offered a job as Head of English at her Belfast school, she knows that it’s an opportunity that she shouldn’t turn down - and yet conflicting desires and loyalties hold her back. Can she take on the job and support her ambitious husband? Can she handle the expectations of the older women around her?

In the process of making this life-changing decision, Jenny revisits her roots in the countryside and finds that her strong affection for her father and respect for his own upbringing will provide an unexpected point of reference for her own life.

    "Pleasant surprise"

    Downloaded this just to use up a credit, but what a wonderful surprise! Similar to Marion Keyes, the characters however much more personal and developed. Nicely done, any further comment would be a spoiler alert!
