Publisher's Summary

On a leafy suburban street in Dublin, beautiful, poised Stella Greene lives with her successful husband, Matt. They're the perfect couple in every way, and Stella appears to have it all. Next door, at number 72, however, lives Rea Brady. Gruff, bad tempered and rarely seen besides the twitching of her net curtains, rumour has it she's lost it all...including her marbles, if you believe the neighbourhood gossip.
But appearances can be deceiving, and when Stella and Rea's worlds collide they realise they have much in common. Both are trapped in prisons of their own making.
Has help been next door without them realising it?
With the warmth and wit of Maeve Binchy and the secrets and twists of Liane Moriarty, this is the utterly original and compelling new novel from Irish Times best seller Carmel Harrington.

The 2004 tsunami writ large on Ireland

Neighbors in Dublin in 2014 learn they’ve all lost family in the 2004 Tsunami in Phuket. The story is less interesting than the characters who feel well drawn and appealing. Too much glib wife beating action (enough already!) and quite a bit too much “God moves in mysterious ways” but the reader has a lovely accent and just enough variation to delineate the characters well. Love of all kinds, amd especially family bonds, is well handled.
