A vintage collection of short stories set in the heart of Dublin, from the bestselling author of Light a Penny Candle and Circle of Friends.
A society hostess entertains her husband’s mistress to dinner; a country girl savours the delights of city life; a student faces the dilemma of unmarried pregnancy; and a drink-ridden photographer tries to relaunch a shattered career…
This vintage collection of stories is Maeve Binchy at her best – her trademark warmth, wit and compassion are unmistakeable.
