‘Maeve Binchy is a master storyteller’ New York Times


Baby Frankie is born into an unusual family. Her mother is desperate to find someone to take care of her child and she doesn’t have much time.

Noel doesn’t seem to be the most promising of fathers but despite everything, he could well be Frankie’s best hope.

As for Lisa, she is prepared to give up everything for the man she loves; surely he’s going to love her back?

And Moira is having none of it. She knows what’s right, and has the power to change the course of Frankie’s life…but Moira is hiding secrets of her own.
