The lives of four strangers are forever altered when they meet in a Greek seaside village in this compelling novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maeve Binchy.

Tourists enter the hilltop tavern, alone and in pairs, for a casual lunch. But a sudden tragedy in the harbor below causes these perfect strangers to become unlikely friends as their lives begin to entwine...

Fiona left her nursing career in Ireland to be with the man everyone thinks is wrong for her. Elsa fled Germany and her high-powered television job once she learned what the man she loved was hiding from her. Thomas mourns his failed marriage and misses his young son in California, while David yearns to reconcile with his family in England without having to go into the family business. Chance has brought them together, and together they will find new ways of looking at the lives they left behind.

“By the time the bouzouki players start up on the last page, you’ll feel you’ve known these people all your life.”—The Seattle Times 

“The sort of book you should take with you on a trip to the Greek islands.”—The Boston Globe

    By far my favorite Maeve Binchy book. She is an extraordinary writer and when I read her books I feel like I am right there where the characters are. And they always have a wonderful message and bring on a few tears. This book was great and very touching. Great read!
