Description

On a leafy suburban street in Dublin, beautiful, poised Stella Greene lives with her successful husband, Matt. They're the perfect couple in every way, and Stella appears to have it all. Next door, at number 72, however, lives Rea Brady. Gruff, bad tempered and rarely seen besides the twitching of her net curtains, rumour has it she's lost it all...including her marbles, if you believe the neighbourhood gossip.

But appearances can be deceiving, and when Stella and Rea's worlds collide they realise they have much in common. Both are trapped in prisons of their own making.

Has help been next door without them realising it?

With the warmth and wit of Maeve Binchy and the secrets and twists of Liane Moriarty, this is the utterly original and compelling new novel from Irish Times best seller Carmel Harrington.

So much emotion, I was not prepared

This book appeared as a recommendation when I finished a Marian Keyes novel. So I thought this novel would be a light bit of fluff.

Well I was wrong! This book captured my attention from the start, the characters where great. The story held me in its grip.
I was on an emtional roller coaster the whole time! I cried a lot during this.
Narrated brilliantly. I really enjoyed this book even though I was a bit exhausted at times from all the emtion.

Love the Narrator!

I definitely got more that I expected from this book, which I initially thought was a fluffy chick-lit. It's a thoughtful story told wonderfully from various viewpoints. The characters are multi-dimensional and real and the story both tragic and hopeful. Recommended!

Surprisingly engrossing. Could not put it down.

I tend to like mysteries, not dramatic novels, but really loved this. The tragedy of the Thai Tsunami became very real, as did the real life struggles of the characters. Life is hard but it still goes on. Happiness is a choice, as are our friends, who may become family. I also enjoyed the narration a lot, much better than many. Glad I chose this book.

Engaging plot and characters

This was around a 4.5. I was immediately drawn into the plot and I readily engaged with the characters. I like the way the story was told from different POVs and the flashbacks. Very well written and enjoyable. I listened to this on audio, but I imagine the print version is just as good. This is my first book by this author but I’ll look for more.

The 2004 tsunami writ large on Ireland

Neighbors in Dublin in 2014 learn they’ve all lost family in the 2004 Tsunami in Phuket. The story is less interesting than the characters who feel well drawn and appealing. Too much glib wife beating action (enough already!) and quite a bit too much “God moves in mysterious ways” but the reader has a lovely accent and just enough variation to delineate the characters well. Love of all kinds, amd especially family bonds, is well handled.

Suuuper Erzählerin

Ich liebe die Stimme von Aoife McMahon also höre ich mich nach und nach durch alle von ihr gesprochenen Titel durch.
Die Geschichte kann von HörerInnen mit mittlerem Englischniveau gut verstanden werden, ist recht kurzweilig, teilweise sehr emotional ergreifend, und insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert.
