Publisher's Summary

Kit McMahon lives in the small Irish town of Lough Glass, a place where nothing changes - until the day Kit's mother disappears and Kit is haunted by the memory of her mother, alone at the kitchen table, tears streaming down her face. 

Now Kit, too, has secrets: of the night she discovered a letter and burned it, unopened. The night her mother was lost. The night everything changed forever....

LOVED it - but beware, misses a couple of key paragraphs at the end!

Like previous reviewer - was a bit miffed at sudden ending, and thought narration seemed to ‘jump’. Sure enough, just spent a £5 on the kindle version, and this version misses a couple of key paragraphs about what happens to everyone at the end!!! Most frustrating! Especially as it’s such an AMAZING book!

Wonderfully Rich Tapestry

Kate Binchy brings this wonderfully evocative tale to life in such realistic narration which beautifully enhances the original story. An interesting and enthralling story that will keep the listener entertained for many hours. Well worth the purchase.
