Maeve Binchy at her very best - the superb novel of one summer, and four people whose lives are irrevocably changed.

In a Greek taverna, high over the small village of Aghia Anna, four people meet for the first time: Fiona, an Irish nurse, Thomas, a Californian academic; Elsa, a German television presenter; and David a shy English boy. Along with Andreas, the old man who runs the taverna, they become close to each other after witnessing a tragedy when a pleasure steamer catches fire in the harbour.

NIGHTS OF RAIN AND STARS is the story of one summer when Fiona, Thomas, Elsa and David all have to face the particular life crisis which first made them leave their homes and end up in Greece. With the help of Vonni, a middle-aged Irishwoman who lives in the village and is now a near native, they each find a solution - although not necessarily the one they anticipated...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Maeve Binchy's latest novel is written and constructed with her trademark simplicity, into which her fans will sink with cries of relief. As with all her writing, it offers old-fashioned pleasures, including a recognisable moral structure where kindness and love can triumph, and mistakes can be rectified * DAILY MAIL *
Required reading . . . [the] perfect summer read * MAIL ON SUNDAY *
The setting is wonderfully seductive . . . Binchy weaves her usual magic . . . Binchy is degrees better than most other novelists and her storytelling ability is second to none * SUNDAY EXPRESS *
The landscape is evocatively Greek, the characters so real you feel you know them. Warm, thoughtful, vintage Maeve Binchy * CHOICE *
Like many a star before her, Maeve Binchy, with her newly published novel, has come back with style, giving her audience of readers a well-deserved encore ... Just as Maeve Binchy introduced her legions of fans abroad to Ireland, her descriptions of Greece and the mouth-watering local delicacies served at the Mesanihta cafe and the taverna will no doubt ensure that the Greek tourist authorities will have to brace themselves for a massive onslaught of visitors to their shores. The storytelling, good humour and warmth are as wonderful as ever, as readers welcome back "La Binchy" * IRISH TIMES *
It's always a treat to read one of Maeve Binchy's novels and this is no exception . . . she introduces us to a group of characters - a random group of holidaymakers thrown together by tragedy - and leaves us caring about them as if they are our friends * BEST *
