In Mountfern, life meanders as slowly as the river running through it. The pace has hardly changed since the great house burned down in the Troubles and its shell became an ivy-clad playground for the local children.

But when Patrick O'Neil arrives from the States with grand plans to turn the ruins of Fernscourt into Ireland's finest hotel, ripples begin to appear on the surface calm of this backwater. Brimming with speculation about the wealthy, charming American, the little community wonders how he will affect their lives.

Unfortunately, some will learn all too painfully that their peaceful world is about to be changed irreversibly and that new friendships, passions and tragedies will destroy the old Mountfern forever. Download and start listening now!

    " The book was 665 pages. It should have been no more than 465 pages. Very drawn out and author often goes off on unnecessary detail. "

    " The Ryans own a pub in Ireland. An Irish-American (and his children) comes to town, purchases the burned out mansion across the way, and plans to restore it to its former glory and use it as a hotel. How that ambition influences all the members of both families and the town in general. "

    Mr. O'Neill arrives in sleepy Fernscourt to build his hotel. His arrival sparks a chain of events that turns the town inside out. "

    " Another great book from Maeve Binchy. It did take me a chapter or two to get into it but I think that may be because it was one of her earlier works. Was definitely worth the read. I feel like it was left a bit open ended but I suppose that's so she can touch on it a little in another story. "
