The story of two different women and a lifelong friendship from the No.1 bestselling author of A Week in Winter.
As a child, Elizabeth was sent from her war-torn, rather loveless home in London to stay with a big, boisterous family in a small town in Ireland. There she meets Aisling, and begins what becomes a long-lasting friendship.
Over the next 20 years, Aisling and Elizabeth’s paths will cross and re-cross. As they face their loves, their marriages, and their disappointments, they realise that not all problems will be solved, nor all wishes granted by lighting a penny candle.
