Summary

A heartwarming and moving story about secrets, fresh starts, and the power of friendship, set in the wilds of Ireland’s shores.

Maeve McKenna is on the verge of a breakdown. Having worked herself into the ground as a sought-after interior designer in London, she’s in desperate need of a vacation.

Philomena Duffy is a little lonely. After losing her husband, their crumbling mansion, Willow House, feels awfully empty.

With the rugged shores of Ireland calling, Maeve visits her aunt Philomena in Sandy Cove, where she once, as a teenager, kissed a wild, mysterious boy - a kiss she has never been able to forget. The beautiful night’s sky is dotted with stars as far as the eye can see, and Maeve is worlds away from her chaotic life in the city.

As Maeve throws herself into restoring Willow House to its former glory, a deep friendship with Philomena begins to blossom. Surrounded by the faded walls and peeling carpets of the old mansion, together they stumble across a secret that turns their family upside down.

All the while, she can’t stop thinking about the enigmatic boy from her past, and that magical kiss.... Is he still in Sandy Cove?

Just as she’s beginning to feel at home, reality calls. Part of Maeve can’t bear to leave Willow House and its rocky beach. Does she have the courage to leave the security of her old life behind, and put down new roots in Sandy Cove, or is that just a daydream?

Fans of Sheila O’Flanagan, Debbie Macomber, and Mary Alice Monroe will fall head over heels for this stunning audiobook.

Just ok

Sadly the accents and narration were not good. Main narration in a lovely Irish lilt but the 'voices' in Irish awful. Lots of repeated phrases, very obvious story line. Didn't flow and was very much read rather than told.

Such fun and romance!

loved the lighthearted story and the narrator got me in the mood for my Irish holiday. Can definitely recommend if you're looking for a romantic easy read with an Irish flavour.

Quite enjoyed it

An easy and sweet story with sad moments. Sometimes a bit too flowery and the grief elements are not explored in depth. It’s part of the story but characters don’t really seem bothered by it. Which makes it lighthearted and sometimes a bit unbelievable.
All in all I enjoyed it.

the reading is more than addequate for the story.

This is not a very good book. It may be well meant but it isn't well written. The audio book is better performed that the story merits.

Utter tosh

Couldn’t get past the highly unlikely conversation with the doctor in the first paragraph. Gave up.
