Customer Reviews

A superb read! Friendship, family and secrets .. this has them all. When Elizabeth's husband dies, she discovers he has left her with momentous debts. The only person she can tell is her friend Jo who calls her daughter in the hope she can help. When Lucy returns home, all three women become firm friends and life changes are on the horizon for each of them - some bigger than others. Swimming in the Irish Sea at midnight proves to be an invigorating experience, leading onto the idea to turn it into a community fundraiser. Will it work? I've read Faith Hogan's books from the very beginning and have simply adored everything single one, and her latest sees a new maturity in her writing, showing the experience she has gained. This is a simply beautiful read, encompassing the difficulties which many of us get foisted upon us in life but it is told in such an uplifting way. I loved everything about it; the characters are beautifully and creatively drawn, the story draws the reader in and the writing makes us really care about it all. This is a novel which will appeal to all ages and leave everyone with the feeling that they have been privileged to share a part of these women's lives. A sheer, unadulterated delight from start to finish earns this one all five sparkling stars and my highest recommendation.
