Yet after our supposedly happy housewife and mother of two is confronted by some inexorable home truths, a chance phone call from America will change her life, forcing her to discard her illusions about men, women, and marriage and start all over again. At the same time, the Connecticut caller, Marilyn Vine, has her own lessons to learn when she and Ria swap houses for the summer. Yet there's nothing remotely preachy about this novel--even the bad guys (and yes, they're usually guys) and beautiful mistresses get to maintain some appeal. Instead, Tara Road is a stirring look at the reality behind our consuming fantasies, and a page-turner to boot. --Siobhan Carson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

AS ALWAYS, MAEVE BINCHY IS THE BEST STORY-TELLER THERE IS. SO RELAXING, SUCH LOVELY THEMES IN HER STORIES. MUST BUY FOR ANYONE WHO WISHES TO GET OUT OF TODAY'S HECTIC PACE.Published on April 18 2012 by MADMAX
