Nights of Rain and Stars

‘The perfect summer read’ Mail on Sunday

Maeve Binchy at her very best – the superb novel of one summer, and four people whose lives are irrevocably changed.


Four strangers, with nothing in common but a need to escape, meet in a Greek taverna high above the small village of Aghia Anna. From Ireland, America, Germany and England they have each left behind their homes and their old lives, when a shocking tragedy throws them unexpectedly together.

Nights of Rain and Stars is the story of one summer and four people, each with a life in turmoil – and Vonni, the Irish exile who would very much like to help them, but has demons of her own to battle . . .

Reviews

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
SUNDAY EXPRESS
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"
IRISH TIMES
Required reading . . . [the] perfect summer read
MAIL ON SUNDAY
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
DAILY MAIL
The landscape is evocatively Greek, the characters so real you feel you know them. Warm, thoughtful, vintage Maeve Binchy
CHOICE
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
