Interesting character study focusing on the inhabitants of a small town in Ireland.
After her divorce, in an attempt to capture some of the joys of childhood, Ellen moves from Dublin to a small country town where she had spent her childhood summers. When she begins to date a younger man, she soon finds herself the target of town gossip.
People who live in small towns will recognize the daily interactions of the residents and how everyone knows (or thinks they know) everything about everybody else. Unique and empathetic (for the most part) characters live and learn to live with each other in this appealing domestic fiction.
