Publisher's Summary

In a Greek taverna, high over the small village of Aghia Anna, four people meet for the first time: Fiona, an Irish nurse; Thomas, a Californian academic; Elsa, a German television presenter; and David, a shy English boy. Along with Andreas, the old man who runs the taverna, they become close to each other after witnessing a tragedy when a pleasure steamer catches fire in the harbour.

Nights of Rain and Stars is the story of one summer when Fiona, Thomas, Elsa, and David all have to face the particular life crisis which first made them leave their homes and end up in Greece. With the help of Vonni, a middle-aged Irish woman who lives in the village and is now a near native, they each find a solution - although not necessarily the one they anticipated....

    "wrong narrator..."

    Don't bother about this unabridged version, the narrator is completely wrong for the story. The abridged version is so much better read, by Kate Binchy.

    "As always, an enjoyable listen."

    I think I've listened to most of Maeve Binchy's books and always enjoy them. This book is a little different to her others, usally there is a chapter for each character in the book but that's not the case with this one. Each character is introduced gradually, I must admit I'm glad I listened to the book but I probably enjoyed some of her other books more, i.e. Circle of Friends must be my favourite. Also it's worth reading this book as other books make refererence to Fiona's time on the Greek Island.

    "Nights of Rain and Stars"

    Lovely read as usual by Maeve Binchy. I love the way all her books roll into one, you feel you already know the characters. Beautifully written in her own wonderful style.
