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.

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!

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.

This is the third Maeve Binchy book I have read and I simply love her. She has been able to capture my attention with how she humanizes the characters in her books. The friendship between Elizabeth and Aishling was endearing and relative to many women I'm sure. There's always that ONE friend that will go through life with you...both in good and bad. I have started my 4th book and plan to read all of them. Thank you Mrs. Binchy. I hope to one day go to Ireland and possibly see you at an autographing session. Best Regards, SquintyDeb

This was the first book I read by this author. What a beautifully written story. I proceeded to read just about all of her others.

What a horribly depressing book. I felt like I needed therapy by the end. Normally I enjoy Maeve Binchy's books, but not this one. Wish I could give it no stars.

My sister reommended this book to me. She remembers reading it in high school and really enjoyed it. How childhood friendship grows stronger through the years. I really felt connected to Aisling and elizabeth. I couldn't put it down once I started it. Maeve Binchy makes you feel like you really know the characters. I would highy recommed this book to anyone.
