Publisher Comments:

Kate Ryan and her husband, John, have a rollicking pub in the Irish village of Mountfern, four lovely children, and such wonderful dreams. But all that changes one fateful summer when American millionaire Patrick ONeill comes to town with his irresistible charm and money to burn. As love and hate vie for a towns quiet heart, old traditions begin to crumble away.

Patrick ONeill means to build the grand hotel of his dreams, with its promise of wealth and change, but loyalties are challenged, jealousies are ignited, and tragedy strikes before the foundation is even laid. Suddenly the Ryans lives are bound up with the newcomer in ways they could never have imagined. And Patrick ONeill faces his own crisis of conscience and heart as the events he sets in motion take on a life of their own in a town that will never be the same again.

Synopsis:

It was a summer of love that would never come again.... A time that has been captured forever in Maeve Binchy's compelling family drama... a novel you will never forget.
