Publisher's Summary

Robinswood Estate, County Waterford, Ireland. 1946. 

Years of neglect and abandonment have left the family seat of the Keneficks almost derelict, but the new Lord Kenefick and his charming young wife Kate are determined to breathe life into the old house once more. 

The war is over, and they have survived, so now they must set about making a bright future for themselves and their family. But the shadows of the past are ever lurking, and there are many who are not willing to see the new Lady Kenefick as anything more than the housekeeper's daughter. 

Kate’s family, the Murphys, find themselves once more inextricably entwined with both the Keneficks and Robinswood, but this time everything is different - or at least they hope it is. 

The legacy of the war cannot be erased, and the events of those fateful years will not be forgotten. Can Robinswood provide a haven for those who need it, or are the scars of the past too deep?

Develops the characters

Jean Grainger does a great job developing the characters in her continuation of Robinswood. She shows how the war has effected them in different ways. Her characters span a wide range of ages, social economic backgrounds, and geographic locations. She weaves them together in such an amazing way that she captures the reader into feeling a part of the group. This is an uplifting book you will want to return to more than once.

Very predictable and unrealistic.

Narrator was good. I hoped to like this series but will not continue it.

I didn't think I could like Lillian ..

Great story with some twists and turns. I love learning about the relationship between the English and the Irish. Not QUITE sure the part about the Mississippi prison was believable, but I CHOOSE to believe.

Good have been better.

To much repetitive info from previous book. Story line was good but mediocre descriptions and detail. Would like to have seen the characters expanded.

Excellent book

Jean Grainger books are so good. I only listen to them on my commute to and from work. Sometimes, I stay in the car a few extra minutes just to keep listening. I am a full time single mom and listening to these books are the perfect ME time. I am not Irish but these books can be loved by anyone of any origin.

Wonderful book!

My husband and I rarely enjoy the same books, but this kept us both interested. We listened to it on a road trip and didn't quite finish before returning home. We wanted to keep driving just to hear the ending!

Not my usual type of book but I loved this

This was a wonderful book. The narrator has a gentle Irish lilt and is perfect for this story. The characters are delightful and you grow to love them even more in this story. You even fall in love with the "less delightful" people in the community and family. There is no "bodice ripping" which is great. I even felt some sympathy for the IRA and yes even a reformed Nazi! Excellent saga. I am so glad that I listened to it.
