'A sparkling, life-affirming novel -- sunshine on the page' Cathy Kelly
Summer is on its way, and Lissbeg librarian Hanna Casey has started a club showing films based on popular novels. But soon the club's members find dramatic twists and turns happening in their own lives on Ireland's west coast.
Hanna's daughter Jazz finally feels like she can call Lissbeg home. But when her life is turned upside down, will she return to London to make a fresh start?
Aideen is afraid that her romance with Conor won't survive the pressures of their planned double wedding with overbearing Eileen and manipulative Joe. Meanwhile, Saira Khan is determined to help a troubled new arrival to Finfarran.
And could Hanna's own newfound happiness to Brian be threatened by the return of her ex-husband Malcolm?
As the club prepares for the first meeting of the summer, they'll all face hard choices. But will they get the happy endings they deserve?
