Publisher Comments:

This is when it begins Fall, 2008.This is where it begins The coast of Dublin, Ireland.This is why it begins Bruno, an American, has come to Ireland to search for his roots. Addie, an out-of-work architect, is recovering from heartbreak while taking care of her infirm father. When their worlds collide, they experience a connection unlike any they've previously felt, but soon a tragedy will test them-and their newfound love-in ways they never imagined possible. This is how it ends . . .

Review:

"MacMahon takes an oft told tale and makes it fresh in her tender debut novel of love in a time of personal and social upheaval. During the first rumblings of the financial collapse and the 2008 U.S. presidential elections, former Lehman Brothers employee Bruno boards a plane bound for Ireland in order to discover his roots, and hopefully himself. But it's what he doesn't expect to find that changes his life. On a beach in Dublin, Addie contemplates the departure of her former flame, the loss of her job as an architect, and her newfound responsibilities as her ailing father's caretaker, settling on her spaniel, dad, and sister as the only things worth living for. But fate brings Bruno and Addie together — just in time to salve each other's wounds, and test their love in the midst of a new tragedy. The running backstory of the recession and political squabbling is distracting and unnecessary, but MacMahon's portrayal of Bruno and Addie's relationship, along with a charming supporting cast, make this a believable and warm tale.

Bookwomyn, October 7, 2012 (view all comments by Bookwomyn)
I read a review of this book and thought it looked good. It was! A 50 year old man loses his job just ahead of the 2008 elections. He decides it is time to search for his roots in Ireland. He meets some of his cousins and falls in love with one (distant). I won't tell you how it ends. Their love story is at the heart of the book & it is charming. This is not a heavy duty read but it is most enjoyable.
