    This was my sister's favorite book, so I decided to re-read it s

    This was my sister's favorite book, so I decided to re-read it since she and Ms. Binchy both died in August. I know I read it a long time ago, but I didn't remember much about it. I did enjoy the friendship and the story kept me interested and was very fast paced. A lovely story about the cards we're dealt, which are not always good ones, and the choices we make as a result of those cards. Through it all, friendship is the one thing that survived all the bumps in the road. Two girls thrown together because of a war end up closer than sisters. We should all have friends like that.

    A great read!

    I just re-read this book recently, and was as enthralled with it as I was the last time I read it (and the time before that....). This is a wonderful book, showing what life used to be like. If you enjoy books about a way of life that existed before you were born, or unlike any you have ever known, you will enjoy this book. The characters are deeply developed and you grow to care so much for them and the lives that Ms. Binchy creates, it's hard not to be a little disappointed when you are finished!

    One of my favorite books by Binchly.

    I enjoyed this book of two families and the dynamics of each. I also enjoyed the continuing friendship of the two girls who were thrown together in world War ll.

    highly recommended - exhausting

    wow what an epic book. be prepared to be exhausted emotionally after reading. I liked empathizing with Ashling's character - knowing I'm not the only person who's husband can't / won't have sex.
