Summary

When Frank Woods at number 79 Primrose Square comes home to a surprise birthday party thrown by his wife and adoring children, it is his guests who get the real surprise.

Finding himself alone, he befriends the cantankerous Miss Hardcastle, who hasn't left her home for decades, and Emily Dunne - fresh out of rehab and desperate to make amends.   

As gossip spreads through Primrose Square, every relationship is tested, and nothing in this close-knit community will ever be the same again....

Brillliant!

This is a fairly light read/listen. Despite this it deals extremely well with several important and difficult issues. It is beautifully written, with strong, richly drawn characters. Aoife McMahan’s narration is fabulously flawless as always.

Beautiful emotional story

I was hooked on the story as it told about the lives of people who had their own troubled lives...and the effect they had on other people as time unfolded ....understanding and patience and a non judgemental attitude to human beings is what I read in this book. Very well told. I love this narrator. Well done to the author !

Great story

Loved this book from start to end. Ok so things work out for all in the end, so what’s wrong with happy endings :-)
Love this narrator as well. Feel like she’s a friend now that I have listened to so much read by her.

Great characters

Absolutely loved the intertwined characters and the building of each story. You grow to love even the most unlovable characters in this book. A nice progression of the Primrose Square tale.
