Publisher's Summary

The warm and wonderful new novel from the natural heir to Maeve Binchy. Eleanor Levine left Ireland seventy years ago with little more than a suitcase and her mother's handwritten recipe book. Now, a lifetime later, she's returning from New York with hard won wisdom and memories of her own. A renowned psychoanalyst, Eleanor knows there's one final journey she has to make…Lovely young actress Megan Bouchier didn't have to chase success – it arrived effortlessly. Fame was what she always wanted until a disastrous affair made her the wrong kind of headlines – now Megan needs a place to hide…Darkly beautiful Rae is a wonderful wife, a loyal friend and a dedicated community carer. From Titania's Tea Rooms she dispenses tea and sympathy to everyone – until a painful secret from her past threatens everything she holds dear.

Big-hearted teacher Connie O'Callaghan has given up on love. She's cheerfully approaching forty and besides, why does no man ever match the heroes in her beloved romantic novels?

As Eleanor re-reads her mother's comforting words and watches life unfold from her window in Dublin's pretty Golden Square, she slowly becomes drawn into the lives of Megan, Rae and Connie. But can treasured wisdom handed down from mother to daughter really be relevant today? And what are the ingredients for a life well lived?

    "Good Story"

    Good story but in my opinion somewhat spoiled by pronunciations of Irish placenames and especially as no effort was made to get Irish language words right. Probably not Bridgid Forsyths fault but attention to detail lacking.
    If you're Irish buy a hardcopy

    "Like a cup of sweet tea"

    This was a really nice story, nice characters, nice narrating voice. Unchallenging and softly flowing. Nice.

    "Ok ish"

    I usually absolutely love Cathy Kelly books, but strugggled to get into this one and remember who all the different characters were and how each was connected.

    It did have quite a good story-line though and was a typical Irish novel.

    At first I found it quite hard to understand the narrators voice, sounded like an older woman.



    Maybe it would have been different of Id have actually read it myself.
