    strong character study

    In Bath, England, Hope Parker struggles between her roles as mother to two toddlers Toby and Millie, wife to writer Matt and her job at Witherspoons. However, she believes Matt is too distracted as he nears his fortieth birthday she fears he is having an affair. Before she can figure out what next, Matt announces he wants the family to spend a year in rural Redlion, Ireland, home of his late Uncle Gearoid, so he can focus on his novel and alleviate the guilt of not visiting his beloved relative in four years until it became too late. Though she has doubts, Hope agrees as she figures that should take him away from his mysterious woman if there is one that is. --- In Redlion, Hope makes friends with Mary-Kate the pharmacist, her niece Delphine and recently widowed grandma Virginia. Connell However as Matt ignores her and seems to spend more time in England than Ireland, she wonders if he moved her and the kids out of the way. Still she has a hunk of her own to perhaps tryst with. --- This is a strong character study starring several protagonists with future issues caused by mistakes in the past or present. The relationships between everyone make for a strong realistic drama as fans and Hope wonder WHAT SHE WANTS. All the players from the four females, to the local hunk to Matt and others (even the deceased) make for a deep entertaining tale that looks at people keeping PAST SECRETS from loved ones and pondering ALWAYS AND FOREVER or nevermore. --- Harriet Klausner

    Started good, but....
    This is the first book I've read by Lamb. What started out good, turned boring around page 350. By that time I began scanning pages to skip the rambling and catch the key elements. And by this time I was so tired of the lead character's wimpy personality I wanted to scream. Her husband ran her life and the kids were brats--well at least the daughter was a brat. And one of the lead characters mentioned in the B&N Introduction and Reading Group Guide isn't even in the book (Nicole). I wonder if there are two versions of this book and I bought the wrong one!

    A story of four women in a charming town, filled with friendship and love.

    Hope Parker is a wonderful wife and mother and seems to have it all. Then one day her husband uproots them to Kerry to start a new life as a writer.
    What starts off as a rough beginning in a new town, turns into a new journey, with new friendships and so much more.
    Hope's sister, Sam is always there for her, but begins to have some problems of her own.
    Hope's new friends, Mary-Kate, Delphine and Virgina all gather together every week, creating a great bond of friendship.
    Not all is perfect though, as a new alluring man is suddenly in Hope's life, she has temptations she never had before.
    A great story that you will not want to put down until you are done.
