Summary

At 66 Star Street in Dublin, someone is watching over the lives of the people living in its flats. But no one is aware of it - yet.

One of them is ready to take the plunge and fall in love; another is torn between two very different lovers. For some, secrets they want to stay buried will come to light, and for others, the unveiling of those secrets will have tragic consequences.

Fate is on its way to Star Street, bringing with it love and tragedy, friendship and heartbreak, and the power to change their lives in the most unexpected of ways.

Excellant

Amazing book and wonderfully read, both tear-jerking and heartwarming all at once. A big recommend.

Marian never disappoints

I was confused at first as it starts at Day 61/Disc 2. So I purchased the other one, which did the same. So I stuck with it. It goes backwards. My word Maran has a vivid imagination. Clever, well written and well narrated. I listened in a 24 hour period but it is quite short. I started to listen to the other, but have decided to give it a break and the characters a rest! I can't wait though. If you like her books, you will love this one.
