9780007373611: House on Willow Street

The warm, engrossing new novel from the No. 1 bestseller, Cathy Kelly Tess used to be happy with her lot: she lives in the idyllic Irish coastal village, Avalon, with her teenage son, Zach and nine-year-old Kitty, and works in the local antiques shop. Her only regret in life is that everything went so horribly wrong with her first love. Then her marriage falls apart and her first love returns to Avalon. Suki, Tess's sister, fled Ireland years ago to marry politician Kyle Richardon, but when Suki discovers that a biographer is planning to tell all, there is only one place she can go to ensure that her secrets stay hidden. Danae is the village post mistress in Avalon and she's worked very hard to make sure nobody knows where she came from or who she is...Her past is her business and that's the way she would like to keep it. In Galway, Mara sits with a smile glued to her face at a wedding; she only wants to ask the groom one thing: why did he tell her he loved her? Needing to put her past behind her, Mara packs up her life and gets ready for a fresh start. Can these four women lay their pasts to rest? Or do they need to look back before they can begin to live for the future?

About the Author:

Cathy Kelly is a number 1 bestselling author. She worked as a journalist before becoming a novelist, and has published thirteen bestselling books. She is also an ambassador for UNICEF in Ireland. She lives in Wicklow with her husband and two sons.

From Booklist:

Kelly’s latest novel features four women—all beautiful, all wounded in one way or another, and all facing life crises at the same time. Sisters Suki and Tess hail from an Irish town where the postmistress, Danae (a woman of mystery to curious townsfolk), is joined by her heartbroken niece, Mara—romances ensue. Stories with four main characters are bound to be complex, and this one is no exception, but plots and subplots are well handled. Secondary characters are quirky and add to the reading fun. The omniscient narration covers 20 years in the lives of the women through flashbacks, artfully placed to shed a little light on present-day happenings and just enough information to ensure a suspenseful read. Kelly’s readers will take comfort in her recognition of the humor in daily life, the necessity of friendship to women, and the strength of bonds among families. This modern-day fairy tale, which starts out sad and ends up just fine, will please Kelly’s fans and appeal to more mature readers of chick lit. --Ellen Loughran
