Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Knockglen to Dublin, heartbreak and betrayal follow three extraordinary and unforgettable women as an explosive confrontation brings hidden lies to the surface and tests the meaning of love and the bonds of friendship. A major motion picture release from Savoy Pictures is scheduled for St. Patrick's Day (March 17) release.

Review:

"Loyal friends Benny and Eve, young women who grew up together in an Irish village, find their relationship tested by the new friendships, romances and opportunities that develop at a Dublin university. According to PW, Binchy's characters have 'a colorful way with words, and if the prose is sometimes careless, this is still Irish storytelling at its contemporary best.'" Publisher's Weekly

Review:

"Binchy is a wonderful storyteller, drawing the reader into the hearts of her characters. This engrossing examination of friendship's vicissitudes moves forward effortlessly at a marvelous pace, carrying the reader along on tense, mounting waves of loyalty and deceit." Sister M. Anna Falbo, Library Journal

Review:

"A wonderful, readable story of successes and disappointments, intrigues and loyalty, families and friendships, this novel demonstrates that testing values, maintaining relationships, and coming of age are universal struggles." Katherine Fitch, School Library Journal

Review:

"There is nothing fancy about [this novel]. There is no torrid sex, no profound philosophy. There are no stunning metaphors. There is just a wonderfully absorbing story about people worth caring about. And that is a rare pleasure." Susan Isaacs, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A rare pleasure...a terrific tale, told by a master storyteller." Susan Isaacs, New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

In this wordless tale, a boy begins a cycle of good will when he shares his snack with a homeless man.
