It began with Benny Hogan and Eve Malone, growing up, inseparable, in the village of Knockglen. Benny -- the only child, yearning to break free from her adoring parents...

It widened at Dublin, at the university where Benny and Eve met beautiful Nan Mahlon and Jack Foley, a doctor's handsome son. But heartbreak and betrayal would bring the worlds of Knockglen and Dublin into explosive collision. Long-hidden lies would emerge to test the meaning of love and the strength of ties held within the fragile gold bands of a... "Circle Of Friends".
