Every summer the four Ryan children play in the ruins of Fernscourt, the once-grand house on the bank of the river. But when the estate is bought by Patrick O'Neill, the wealthy Irish American, his grand plans for its development threaten to shatter the peace. A new luxury hotel promises to breathe new life into the village, and yet it could also spell disaster for the Ryan family. And as old values and traditions begin to crumble away, no-one - not even Patrick - can predict what his big dreams will do to the heart of their quiet village.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Wonderfully warm and involving" -- Katie Fforde
"Maeve Binchy has a gimlet eye for the seething cauldron of emotions which lies beneath the surface of everyday life" * Irish Independent *
"An adept storyteller with a sharp eye for social nuances and a pleasing affection for her characters" * Sunday Times *
"The secrets hidden behind lace curtains, a young girl's first kiss, children's summer games, unexpected pregnancies, sudden deaths. She makes us feel as if we also know the place and the people... One of those good old-fashioned stories that are as comfortable and comforting as home itself" * The Philadelphia Inquirer *
