It starts with the characters as young adults and follows them through their adulthood to parenthood, through friendships and hardships.

The book was a little slow to start, but, very quick to get you back on track.
This was my first Maeve Binchy read and I was so impressed I went to the library to take out more. Every time I thought, "where else can this book go?", she was pulling in another storyline, character, twist or turn. I finished this book in a matter of days, I couldn't put it down.
