Perfect for fans of Maeve Binchy, a lovely, warm, Irish family saga of three generations of women coming together one magical summer in the small seaside town of Caracove Bay .

A little magic is about to come to sleepy Caracove Bay...

Lexie and her husband Sam have spent years lovingly restoring No. 3 Cashel Square to its former glory. So imagine Lexie's delight when a stranger knocks on the door, asking to see the house she was born in over sixty years ago.

Kathleen is visiting from America, longing to see her childhood home... and longing for distraction from the grief of losing her husband.

And as Lexie and Sam battle over whether or not to have a baby and Kathleen struggles with her loss, the two women realise their unexpected friendship will touch them in ways neither could have imagined.

In Caracove, there's more than a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Absolutely delightful novel. A lot of different dynamics between families and husband/wives including the most pressing issue of whether or not to have children. Family pressures and guilt trips resonate with all of us drawing the readers in. For anyone who has lost a loved one, the glimpses of messages from beyond are touching and very believable.

To be honest I only read a few chapters. I didn't like the main character, who came across as selfish, spoiled and ungrateful.
There was a lot of banal, trite dialogue consisting predominately of cliches and slang. I am surprised the library spent money on such poor quality writing.
