From the number one bestselling author Claudia Carroll comes a warm, feel-good story that will make you laugh and cry, and above all, leave you with a feeling of hope. 'A wise, warm and witty gem . . . I loved it' Carmel Harrington 'Funny, smart and thoroughly engaging' Liz Nugent 'It made me laugh and it made me weep . . . a stunning book' Sinead Moriarty So many stories hidden behind closed doors . . . It's late at night and the rain is pouring down on the Dublin city streets. A mother is grieving for her dead child. She stands silently outside the home of the teenage boy she believes responsible. She watches . . . In a kitchen on the same square, a girl waits anxiously for her mum to come home. She knows exactly where she is, but she knows she cannot reach her. A few doors down, and a widow sits alone in her room. She has just delivered a bombshell to her family during dinner and her life is about to change forever. And an aspiring theatre director has just moved in to a flat across the street. Her landlord is absent, but there are already things about him that don't quite add up . . . Welcome to Primrose Square. Praise for Claudia Carroll: 'Modern, warm, insightful and filled with characters that felt like friends at the end' Emma Hannigan 'Original, poignant and funny . . . [full of] wit and humour' Sheila O'Flanagan 'It bubbles and sparkles like pink champagne' Patricia Scanlan 'Full of warmth, humour and emotion . . . I guarantee you'll love it' Melissa Hill

The pages of this new, very human story teem with characters we can all recognise as they experience some of real life's most emotive and painful issues. But there is also love, hope, friendship, humour and a fascinating glimpse into the world of the theatre. Clever, compelling and wise, this is a summer novel to cherish... * Lancashire Evening Post *

This book had tons and mystery and intrigue but also loads of heart * Fabulous Book Fiend *
Tackling sensitive issues that are associated with a loss of power, Claudia Carroll shows she has a deep understanding of motives and human nature. She has written about these issues so very well, exploring the darker side of emotions and opening the cracks that never lay buried for ever because they need to be talked about and healed. So poignant and heartbreaking but also a glimmer of light even though life has changed. One not to miss! * Jera's Jamboree *
