Publisher's Summary

When Danny Lynch tells his wife Ria that he has a young pregnant mistress, Ria thinks that her world has ended. Little does she know that within weeks a telephone call from America will open up a whole new world for her. Marilyn Vine, escaping from her own private demons, wants to exchange her house in Westville, New England, for a house in Dublin during a few summer weeks. Ria Lynch's big Victorian house in Tara Road is perfect. And so begins a wonderful story of unlikely loves and friendships, rivalries, jealousy, and the uncovering of secrets, as the two women borrow each other's houses, neighbours, and lives.

    "Maeve Binchy at her Best"

    Another pleasing tale from Maeve Binchy ... gentle yet dealing with sometimes painful subjects such as infidelity, domestic violence, bereavement and their impact. Great characterisation - I especially loved the hapless young Brian - saying out loud those things which made his families cringe. Also well drawn are the cool and false friend Rosemary; Ria's bustling mother 'Holly' forever 'only staying for a minute'; the charming philandering husband, Danny and the visiting American, Marilyn, dropped into this perplexing whirlpool of Irish friends and family knowing each other's business and being intimately involved in each other's lives. As ever, narrator Kate Binchy rises to the challenge of bringing this diverse range of characters to life. I felt that I could fly to Dublin, find then wander down Tara Road and meet these characters for real,on that well portrayed street.
