Publisher's Summary

The second in Felicity Hayes-McCoy's Finfarran Peninsula series and sequel to The Library at the Edge of the World - a heartwarming story about secrets between four generations of Irish women and the healing powers of books, love, and friendship.

The Garden Café, next to Lissbeg Library, is a place where plans are formed and secrets shared, and where, even in high-tourist season, people are never too busy to stop for a sandwich and a cup of tea.  

But 21-year-old Jazz - daughter of the town’s librarian, Hanna Casey - has a secret she can’t share. Still recovering from a car accident and reeling from her father’s disclosures about his longtime affair, she’s taken a job at the Old Forge guesthouse and has begun to develop feelings for a man who’s strictly off-limits.

Meanwhile, involved in her own new affair with architect Brian Morton, Hanna is unaware of the turmoil in Jazz’s life - until her manipulative ex-husband, Malcom, reappears trying to mend his relationship with their daughter. Rebuffed at every turn, Malcolm must return to London, but his mother, Louisa, is on the case. Unbeknownst to the rest of the family, she hatches a plan, finding an unlikely ally in Hanna’s mother, the opinionated Mary Casey. 

Watching Jazz unravel, Hanna begins to wonder if secrets that Malcolm has forced her to keep may have harmed their beloved daughter more than she’d realized. But then, the Casey women are no strangers to secrets, something Hanna realizes when she discovers a journal, long buried in land she inherited from her great-aunt Maggie. Ultimately, it’s the painful lessons of the past that offer a way to the future, but it will take the shared experiences of four generations of women to find a way forward for Hanna and her family.
