Evacuated from Blitz-battered London, shy and genteel Elizabeth White is sent to stay with the boisterous O'Connors in Kilgarret, Ireland. It is the beginning of an unshakeable bond between Elizabeth and Aisling O'Connor, a friendship which will endure through 20 turbulent years of change and chaos, joy and sorrow, soaring dreams, and searing betrayals.
Writing with warmth, wit, and great compassion, Maeve Binchy tells a magnificent story of the lives and loves of two women, bound together in a friendship that nothing can tear asunder - not even the man who threatens to come between them forever.
It's all about me!
My mother read this book when she was pregnant with me, and fell in love with the name Aisling. I've met Maeve Binchy when I was younger, and she signed the book "this book was all about you" I was in Ireland with my mother, and we sent Maeve a message, but unfortunetly she was very sick, she still sends me postcards with messages and such. I hope you enjoy this story as much as my family has!
A Maeve Binchy classic.
