The sparkling new bestseller about three women and one life-changing book. 'Not something you'll ever want to put down' Sunday Independent
'One of the smartest writers of popular fiction around' Irish Independent
In 1980, three schoolgirls visit St. Valentine's shrine in Dublin to write their petitions for love.
Years later, Abby, Vonnie and Diana have discovered that finding love was the easy bit - it's what you do with it once you've found it that's tricky . . .
When Vonnie returns home unexpectedly from her life in California, all three women are forced to examine their choices, loves and lives, which have proved surprising and in some ways precarious.
So much for St. Valentine - if the saint has taught them anything about love, it's be careful what you wish for . . .
But real love is always a work in progress, and even life-long friends must learn to open their eyes - and especially their hearts - because St. Valentine has some unfinished business with them . . .
Fiona O`Brien left an award winning career in advertising to write her first novel in 2002. She lives in Sandymount, Dublin.
