It was a summer of warmth.... Kate Ryan and her husband, John, have a rollicking pub in the Irish village of Mountfern... lovely twelve-year-old twins... and such wonderful dreams.... It was a summer of innocence... but all that is about to change this fateful summer of 1962 when American millionaire Patrick O'Neill comes to town with his irresistible charm and a pocketful of money... when love and hate vie for a town's quiet heart and old traditions begin to crumble away.... It was a summer of love that would never come again.... A time that has been captured forever in Maeve Binchy's compelling family drama... a novel you will never forget.

Unlike her later books I found this slow and characters not really that interesting. Wanted to love it but I couldn't even finish it.

One of my particular favourites of Binchy. While it is a lengthy epistle I had no difficulty getting through it. I think having it take place of a span of 4 years made it easily digestible. I had mixed feelings about some of the characters as is apt to happen in her writing. Wonderful character development. I was engaged throughout the whole book. The ending seemed a little abrupt.

I have read all of Maeve's books and her character development is terrific.
