Description


It was a summer of warmth.... Kate Ryan and her  husband, John, have a rollicking pub in the Irish  village of Mountfern... lovely twelve-year-old  twins... and such wonderful dreams.... It was a summer  of innocence... but all that is about to change  this fateful summer of 1962 when American  millionaire Patrick O'Neill comes to town with his  irresistible charm and a pocketful of money... when love  and hate vie for a town's quiet heart and old  traditions begin to crumble away.... It was a summer of  love that would never come again.... A time that  has been captured forever in Maeve Binchy's  compelling family drama... a novel you will never forget.

Praise for Firefly Summer…


"Totally engrossing....  Unforgettable.... An absolutely grand story.... A lyrical and  compelling family drama.... Mountfern and its  residents come vibrantly alive." -- The  Plain Dealer.

"The secrets hidden  behind lace curtains, a young girl's first kiss,  children's summer games, unexpected pregnancies, sudden  deaths. She makes us feel as if we also know the  place and the people.... One of those good  old-fashioned stories that are as comfortable and  comforting as home itself." -- The  Philadelphia Inquirer
