Publisher Comments:

Get ready to paint the town green.

New York Times bestselling authors Maeve Binchy and Marian Keyes top an impressive roster of the Emerald Isle's most popular women writers as they celebrate the joys and perils of love and the adventure and constancy of female friendships.

In Maeve Binchy's "Carissima," an ex-pat returns to Ireland and shakes things up for her family, who finds her free spirit scandalous. In "Soulmates," by Marian Keyes, one woman's relationship is so bleedin' perfect that it's driving her friends crazy. In Cathy Kelly's "Thelma, Louise and the Lurve Gods," two women on a madcap Stateside road trip encounter a pair of insanely good-looking men....These fabulous stories and a baker's dozen more prove that when it comes to spinning a good yarn, the Irish are the best in the business.

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling authors Maeve Binchy and Marian Keyes top an impressive roster of the Emerald Isle's most popular women writers in this collection of sixteen stories. In Maeve Binchy's "Carissima," a longtime ex-pat and free spirit returns to Ireland from Sicily and shakes things up for her family. And in "Soulmates" by Marian Keyes, one woman's relationship is so bleedin' perfect that it's driving her friends up the wall. The authors of Scottish Girls About Town include Jenny Colgan, Isla Dewar, and Muriel Gray, among many others.

Kathryn, January 23, 2007 (view all comments by Kathryn)
This anthology of 16 of Ireland"s best female writers,
covers every emtion that is possible for the human race to express. The joys and sorrows as portrayed by sixteen diverse outlooks is an enjoyable journey into the human
psyche. If there is a common thread, it is the exploration
of the humanity of the protagonists. Enjoyable and compelling.
