‘They were still talking as the first stars came into the sky…’

Four strangers meet at a taverna on a beautiful Greek island, with nothing in common except a need to escape. But over one magical summer they’ll discover that sometimes, the people who understand you the best can be the ones who don’t know you at all…

Fiona left her nursing career in Ireland to be with the man everyone thinks is wrong for her. Elsa fled Germany and her high-powered television job once she learned what the man she loved was hiding from her. Thomas mourns his failed marriage and misses his young son in California, while David yearns to reconcile with his family in England without having to go into the family business.

Chance has brought them together, and together they will find new ways of looking at the lives they left behind.
Find out why millions of readers adore Maeve Binchy…

Required reading . . . [the] perfect summer read
The landscape is evocatively Greek, the characters so real you feel you know them. Warm, thoughtful, vintage Maeve Binchy
The setting is wonderfully seductive . . . Binchy weaves her usual magic . . . Binchy is degrees better than most other novelists and her storytelling ability is second to none
Like many a star before her, Maeve Binchy, with her newly published novel, has come back with style, giving her audience of readers a well-deserved encore ... Just as Maeve Binchy introduced her legions of fans abroad to Ireland, her descriptions of Greece and the mouth-watering local delicacies served at the Mesanihta café and the taverna will no doubt ensure that the Greek tourist authorities will have to brace themselves for a massive onslaught of visitors to their shores. The storytelling, good humour and warmth are as wonderful as ever, as readers welcome back "La Binchy"
An absolute joy, Maeve sweeps you away to a Greek island paradise you won't ever want to leave!
Veronica Henry, bestselling author of THE IMPULSE PURCHASE
Maeve Binchy's latest novel is written and constructed with her trademark simplicity, into which her fans will sink with cries of relief. As with all her writing, it offers old-fashioned pleasures, including a recognisable moral structure where kindness and love can triumph, and mistakes can be rectified
A master storyteller
Marian Keyes
It's always a treat to read one of Maeve Binchy's novels and this is no exception . . . she introduces us to a group of characters - a random group of holidaymakers thrown together by tragedy - and leaves us caring about them as if they are our friends
A brilliant and very entertaining writer
Jilly Cooper
