Publisher's Summary

When Astarte Weaver finds her boyfriend and best friend in her bed, she returns to County Clare in Ireland, a place that holds happy childhood memories, and buys a ruined cottage in an area that the locals call "the Swan Lake". Trying to rebuild her home - and her life - with the help of local builder Flynn, Astarte gradually becomes part of the tightly knit local community.
But when tragedy hits the small village, Astarte discovers that the only way to heal the sorrow of the present is to come to terms with the events of the past.

Love this narrator, struggled with story

I found this book because it was listed as another book narrated by Amy Creighton who I loved listening to in the "Time of your Life". She's a talented reader and if this this platform can be used to have her read more books, let's make that happen!

While I did like the story and the well developed characters, and while I know it's the lengthy development of the characters that is the impetus of my love for them, I found the middle of the story dragged on, and on.

There was only an hour left and I wondered if Astarte and Flynn would only ever drink tea together and just like that the climax came and went and the book was over.

I liked the book but it left me wanting more.
