Publisher's Summary

Síle is a stylish citizen of the new Dublin, a veteran flight attendant who's travelled the world. Jude is a 25-year-old archivist, stubbornly attached to the tiny town of Ireland, Ontario, in which she was born and raised. On her first plane trip, Jude's and Síle's worlds touch and snag at Heathrow Airport. In the course of the next year, their lives, and those of their friends and families, will be drawn into a new, shaky orbit.
This sparkling, lively story explores age-old questions: Does where you live matter more than who you live with? What would you give up for love, and would you be a fool to do so?

Fairly mundane love story with good characters

I enjoyed this book. But it is a bit of fluff.

Story - So two girls meet and fall in love. Nice, sweet, the world needs more love, but why is it worth my time? Answer: It isn't really, this is a book that I will forget very quickly. I liked the characters, I felt that they are well drawn. I have to be honest here, romances are not "my thing" but I will read the good ones. This wasn't one I would recommend. The only thing I was glad about is that it wasn't a "bodice ripper", no steamy sex scenes here just knowing that the characters enjoy their sex life is enough. Thankyou for that. I hate those sorts of sloppy paragraphs that some authors feel obliged to write.

Narrator - The narrator is ok, takes a while to get into the Irish accent and can at times sound more Caribbean than anything else, but is otherwise competent.

Wonderful romp

Delightful and occasionally harrowing romance, which asks questions about what constitutes home and what things are worth taking a chance on. Charmingly read.
