Description of this Book

In this wonderful third Tarabeg novel, Mary Kate Malone finds that a secret life in the shadows with her great love, Dr Nicholas, brings heartache and sorrows. When disaster strikes unexpectedly, she turns to the only people she can trust, in the only place she feels safe - her Irish family and friends in the west coast village of Tarabeg. But back in Ireland, everything has changed. Peggy has taken over Mary Kate's old bedroom above the shop and her grandparents seem to be in thrall to a wealthy American relative called Joe Malone. Mary Kate hates him on sight. When he reveals plans to turn the old Manor House into a hotel, she decides to fight him and finds that the village, where she once felt so loved, has bitterly divided loyalties in a battle which can only have one winner.
