Review Text

The biggest lesson life can teach anyone is how dangerous it is to plan for the future - for the future is unknown territory, ever ready with corners we can't see round and obstacles to trip us up. Hope, her sister Sam, Virginia and Nicole all have life mapped out. They know what they want and are well on the way to achieving it. Half-Indian Nicole, over-anxious prop-and-stay of her close family, has a boring day job but loves to sing. She has no idea of her own potential, and the height of her ambition is to sing along to karaoke in the pub - and maybe, one day, have 'a place of her own'. Hope already has a place of her own, a man of her own and children of her own. All her ambitions have been achieved. Sam, her sister, is a complete opposite: high-flying Managing Director of a music label, ambitious, successful, self-reliant, she thinks she's probably happy, but isn't sure. Virginia was happy until her beloved husband died, leaving an enormous hole in her life that nothing could ever fill. A disparate group, they have almost nothing in common... except for a small village in south-western Ireland which only one of them has yet seen, but which draws them to it for completely different reasons, offering solace, challenges, new opportunities and in the end the realization of their true selves. This is a generous book, in both length and content, perfect for long dark winter evenings or lazy days on sun-warmed beaches; unashamedly romantic, full of homespun philosophy and appreciation of the capacity of women to support each other in adversity. Cathy Kelly won the Parker Romantic Novel of the Year Award in 2001, with Someone Like You, and, if this novel is anything to judge by, the prize was well deserved. (Kirkus UK)
