Publisher Description

'Set in a country house hotel on the West coast of Ireland it's full of her trademark warmth, humour and lovable character' Woman

The Sheedy sisters had lived in Stone House for as long as anyone could remember. Set high on the cliffs on the west coast of Ireland, overlooking the windswept Atlantic Ocean, it was falling into disrepair - until one woman, with a past she needed to forget, breathed new life into the place. Now a hotel, with a big warm kitchen and log fires, it provides a welcome few can resist.

Winnie is generally able to make the best of things, until she finds herself on the holiday from hell. John arrived on an impulse after he missed a flight at Shannon. And then there's Henry and Nicola, burdened with a terrible secret, who are hoping the break at Stone House will help them find a way to face the future...

'This is a book designed to be read in a dark January chill; it begs for a fireside and the sound of wind and rain howling outside ... If you haven't come across her before, you've got a real treat in store' The Lady

A good read

What a lovely read - now I want to visit Ireland to enjoy/prolong the 'feel good' factor this book evokes. Maeve Binchy has done it again, I was spellbound!

A week in Winter

I cannot imagine what will be done when there are no more Maeve Binchy catch ups to read. Once again, she dips in and out of old characters from previous books that we have come to know and love at the same time, introducing us to new ones that will undoubtedly become part of future memories. I wish I could read them more slowly, every page is to be savoured like some rare treat .. Her new characters are just as loving and beloved as are they are always ... Can we not lock her in a room and demand she writes at least 300 books immediately?
