Evacuated from Blitz-battered London, the shy Elizabeth White is sent to stay with the O’Connor family in Kilgarret, Ireland, where she strikes up an unlikely friendship with the lively, boisterous Aisling O’Connor.
Neither of them were to know it would become the most important friendship of their lives. Their bond is unshakeable, enduring over turbulent years of change and chaos, joy and sorrow, soaring dreams – and searing betrayals . . .
With warmth, wit and great compassion, Maeve Binchy tells a magnificent story of two women, bound together in a friendship that nothing could tear apart – not even the man who threatened to come between them forever.
