Summary

For Clare O’Connell, home is where the heart aches....

Since the age of 16, Clare O'Connell has lived her life by four strict rules:

  1. Don't talk about Ireland.
  2. Don't think about Ireland.
  3. Don't go to Ireland.
  4. Don't let anyone in.

And so far, it's worked well. She's got a great career, amazing friends, and she's really happy. The future is all that counts, isn't it?

However Clare is about to realise that you can run from the past, but you can't always hide from it.

When her boss insists she travels to Ireland for work, Clare finds herself drawn back to the village of Ballykielty - the home of her family, and the home of her secrets. The one place she vowed never to return to again.

With the door to her past now wide open, the first three rules have gone out of the window. Will Clare stick to rule number four

Can she be brave and face up to her family and the demons of her past? 

An emotional novel of family, friendship and dealing with your past from top 10 best seller Jessica Redland.

This book was previously published as Dreaming About Darran.

Really enjoyed - more graphic than necessary

I have really enjoyed this series, however I do feel that this book in particular was missing a trigger warning and content warnings for rape, sex and complex and toxic family dynamics. Otherwise it was a great book, if a bit graphic.

loved all 4 books in this series x

loved all 4 books in this series thank you so much, sometimes the narrator went from English to Irish by mistake as one was female and the other was male, I just had to rewind and double check, which made me giggle x

Oh my God!! Jessica Redland this book made me cry, life, swear, hug my husband tightly soo many times and appreciate everything I have.. She really saved the best book to be the last in the series.. And Lucy Brownhill bought it to life.. The story had soo many twists and revelations.. I absolutely loved the ending.. She ended up with the right guy.. Can’t wait to hear more titles by Jessica Redland.. Thank you xxx
