9780099498667: Firefly Summer

Kate and John Ryan have four children, of whom the eldest are Michael and Dara. Their small town is peaceful and friendly, an unchanging background for a golden childhood. In long, hot summers Michael and Dara and their friends fish and swim or play in the ivy-clad ruins of Fernscourt, the great house burned down during the Troubles...

No one in Mountfern has the slightest inkling of what it will mean when the ruins are bought by Patrick O'Neill, an Irish American with a dream in his heart and a great deal of money in his pocket. It is not until the very end of this drama, with its interlocking stories of love lost and won, ambitions nurtured and secrets betrayed, that Patrick O'Neill will understand the irony and the significance of his great dream for Mountfern.

Review:

"Maeve Binchy has a gimlet eye for the seething cauldron of emotions which lies beneath the surface of everyday life" ( Irish Independent)

"An adept storyteller with a sharp eye for social nuances and a pleasing affection for her characters" ( Sunday Times)

"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)

From the Publisher:

Firefly Summer is warm, humorous, sad and happy. Reading it is a joy' Irish Independent
