Publisher Description

Stoneybridge is a small town on the west coast of Ireland where all the families know one another. When Chicky Starr decides to take an old, decaying mansion set high on the cliffs overlooking the windswept Atlantic Ocean and turn it into a restful place for a holiday by the sea, everyone thinks she is crazy. Helped by Rigger (a bad boy turned good who is handy around the house) and Orla, her niece (a whiz at business), Chicky is finally ready to welcome the first guests to Stone House’s big warm kitchen, log fires, and understated elegant bedrooms. John, the American movie star, thinks he has arrived incognito; Winnie and Lillian are forced into taking a holiday together; Nicola and Henry, husband and wife, have been shaken by seeing too much death practicing medicine; Anders hates his father’s business, but has a real talent for music; Miss Nell Howe, a retired schoolteacher, criticizes everything and leaves a day early, much to everyone’s relief; the Walls are disappointed to have won this second-prize holiday in a contest where first prize was Paris; and Freda, the librarian, is afraid of her own psychic visions.
Sharing a week with this unlikely cast of characters is pure joy, full of Maeve’s trademark warmth and humor. Once again, she embraces us with her grand storytelling.

A Week In Winter

I would love to have another series of all the people in the Hotel.

Truly Charming

What a truly charming, sophisticated novel. Deceptive in its superficial simplicity, it nonetheless delivers deep satisfaction and affection.

The end of an era.

I have read all of Maeve Binchys works and I will truly miss her story's. Her characters are brought to life. You feel their sorrow and happiness. She has made all her characters like your family,friends and neighbors. Time to re-read and treasure her gift to us. She was blessed with an amazing talent and we were lucky she shared it with us. Bet she is busy writing stories for us to read in our afterlife. God Bless you Maeve,your readers will certainly miss you.
