Teenage daughters; a tricky ex-husband; love, friendship, warmth and humour - Maeve Binchy on top form in this No.1 bestseller
'Heart and Soul is another instant classic, infused with Maeve's trademark warmth, charm and compassion . . . she is the Queen of Fiction' Irish Times

'Make no mistake, there is magic at work' Elizabeth Buchan, Sunday Times

Clara Casey has more than enough on her plate: two difficult daughters, a demanding new job running a heart clinic and an ex-husband who wants something from her . . .

For Ania, meeting Clara is a miracle. She never intended to leave Poland - but perhaps a new country will mend her broken heart? Then there's Father Flynn, whose life is turned upside down when his reputation is threatened; and the beautiful, troubled nurse, Fiona, who can't leave the secrets of her past behind . . .
