Estranged from her mother since she ran away from her rural Irish home as a young woman, Kate swore that she'd always be a friend to her daughter, Sabine. But history has a way of repeating itself, and with Sabine about to journey to Ireland to see her grandmother, Kate is left wondering what she can do to close the gap between them. For Joy, seeing her granddaughter is a dream come true. And when Sabine's impetuous, inquisitive nature forces her to face long-buried secrets, Joy realizes that it's time to finally heal old wounds.

Moyes’ talent for finding stories in family relationships continues in this story. When pregnant, unmarried Kate flees her drab horse-loving parents in rainy, cold Ireland for a life in London, she never successfully develops relationships with men. She sends her daughter, Sabine, to Ireland to spend time with her grandparents. Sabine comes to appreciate what her mother couldn’t but it takes the death of her grandfather to bring her mother back to discover that you don’t need to leave home to find happiness.

Oh my goodness, I love this author. Fully realized characters, lots of emotional angst and a bit of romance. Of course, British! As in many books that could be categorized as 'chick lit', we don't get inside the minds of the males very much but Jojo's later novels do this better. I still liked this book very much.

Joy is estranged from her only daughter, Kate, and knows little of her sixteen-year-old granddaughter Sabine. But all that is about to change when Sabine arrives, seeking shelter at her grandparents' house in Ireland -- the very place from which her mother, Kate, ran years before.

Suddenly, with an impetuous and inquisitive young woman in the house, Joy finds herself facing long-buried secrets of her past. And Kate, too, must bridge the painful chasm between herself, her daughter, and ultimately, her mother. Coming together, these three generations discover fundamental truths about love, duty, and the unbreakable bond that unites them as mother, daughters, and women
