‘I had to go back to New York and try to find him. There was a chance he mightn’t be there but I had to give it a go because there was one thing I was certain of: he wasn’t here.’
Anna Walsh is officially a wreck. She’s covered in bandages and she’s lying in her parents’ Good Front Room dreaming of leaving Dublin and getting back to New York.
To her friends.
To The Most Fabulous Job in the World™.
And most of all, back to her husband, Aiden.
But her family have other ideas (not to mention the usual problems that beset the Walsh sisters). And Aiden, for some reason, seems unwilling to get in touch.
What happened to Anna to send her so far from all that she loves? And what happened to her marriage that her husband won’t talk to her?

The jokes are as good as ever, Keyes' large cast of Irish and American characters fizz and crackle off the page. High quality entertainment ( Marie Claire)
It takes real talent to make a reader laugh and cry . the story will stay with you long after you've read the last page ( Heat)
The novel is a rare blend of genres, a richly enjoyable satire and an inspirational tale of one woman's triumph over despair (Telegraph Daily)
Keyes writes brilliantly, as always, about love, grief, jealousy and friendship ( Daily Mail)
Dubliner Anna is the fourth of five Walsh sisters who seems to
have it all - gorgeous husband Aidan, an apartment in Manhattan and The
Best Job In The World. So it's not surprising she doesn't want to stay for
long in her parents' Good Front Room in Blackrock, where there's nothing to
do but watch the antics of her sister Helen who spends most of her time
hiding in bushes with binoculars trying to catch errant spouses 'at it'.
Anna doesn't wait too long before heading back to her life in New York -
her ridiculous mandatory work wardrobe and gut-clenching Monday Morning
Meetings, the city of eight minute speeding dating, the Labradoodle and
Back in Manhattan Anna sees Aidan everywhere - walking down the street and
passing by in a bus - so why won't he return her calls or emails?
Meanwhile, Helen's professional life becomes weirder than fiction when she
gets entangled in the Dublin criminal underworld and is charged with spying
on Mrs Big and Racey O'Grady. And who is the old lady encouraging her dog
to do 'his business' outside the Walsh house? And how far is Mammy Walsh
willing to go to put a stop to it? One thing's for sure, when the Walsh
women get together there's no telling how things will turn out.
