    " This book was quite good. It was easy to read and the characters were lovely. It wasn't -fantastic- but it wasn't crap either... it was just a nice read. It was a story about a group of tourists from different countries who end up in a small village in Greece. Their lives are all brought together by a tragic event and it takes you through their inner struggles regarding their lives they were all running away from. Worth picking up if you are a M.B. fan. It's not the best of her books but good. "

    " This is a great book to curl up and read on a stormy day in front of the fire. "

From Ireland, America, Germany and England, they have each left their homes and old lives, when a shocking tragedy throws them unexpectedly together." "Fiona is a young nurse, trying to make her family understand her need to follow her own path. Thomas desperately misses his young son and fears that his ex-wife will come between them. Elsa abruptly left her career as a television presenter, but someone from her past refuses to let her go. And shy, quiet David is determined to make a stand against his overbearing father. With these four is Andreas, the taverna owner, who badly misses the son who left home nine years ago and has never returned." Nights of Rain and Stars is the story of one summer and four people, each with a life in turmoil. With the help of Vonni, a middle-aged Irish woman who lives in the village and is now a near-native, they find solutions - though not necessarily the ones they anticipated. An easy read that many of my friends would enjoy. A little to predictable for me, although it does make me want to travel to Greece. "

    " Loved this book. Now I want to go to Greece! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley | 1/19/2014

    " This book was alright. I got into the story pretty easily and wanted to know what would happen to the characters, even though I got annoyed at most of the characters. It's just hard to believe that all of them had the same problems and were so blind to the obvious solutions. The other thing that bothered me was that there were so many breaks in the story. Every page had at least one shift in viewpoint, if not 2. I felt like I was getting whiplash by being tossed around so much between the characters. Kind of annoying. But it was entertaining and easy reading. "

    " Danielle Steel hits the Greek Isles. Don't bother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eloise | 12/23/2013

    " It was a simple book that I was excited to go to after a long day. The setting in Greece was what drew me to the novel and the characters were nice and genuine but I got annoyed at Fiona for not getting over Shane. I do hope to read more Maeve Binchy stories in the future though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/20/2013

    " Have had this sitting on my shelf to read for a long time. I enjoy Maeve Binchy's books. She always has a lot of characters and interesting things going on with them. She has a way of weaving a good tale in all her books. This wasn't my favorite of hers, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cherylck | 12/17/2013

    " Typical feel-good M. Binchey, but not as good as some of her others. Quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andie | 12/9/2013

    " Classic Maeve Binchy. Great light read, perfect for the beach or pool. I love her writing and her characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill Blouch | 12/3/2013

    " It was great to read about a Greek island while I was cruising around the Mediterranean! Loved the references to food, drink, sayings and places that I could really relate to. But the story was a little weak. Really liked the characters, just would have liked to see a little more done with them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lela | 11/20/2013

    " Another Maeve Binchy book. I love how she has people from different backgrounds and walks of life all come together to get to know, love, and care about each other in this story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 11/20/2013

    " So far I am enjoying this book about 4 people whose lives are all pushed together by chance when they all witness a tragedy at sea. I am anxious to find out what happens in their lives. First book of Ms. Binchy's I have read and I hope the rest are as good .... about 1/2 way done with it now!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia Kadoche | 11/15/2013

    " Another awesome Maeve Binchy book!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marian | 4/2/2013

    " A few characters known from her other novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irene Slater | 3/5/2013

    " Light read, fun but predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stella | 1/18/2013

    " Ana amazing book for anyone who has ever has (or wants to)get lost in Greece and to stay there. This book is well written, and touches the hearts of the reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Hillis | 1/1/2013

    " A gentle, engaging, typical-modern-Binchy summer read. It's predictable and happy-ending-ish, but still a good choice for a puke-cleaning mom who needs something simple but satisfying to pass the hours in between vomit fests. Not deep, it won't change your life, but it won't hurt ya, either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrienne | 11/8/2012

    " Maeve Binchy is an excellent story-teller; she will be missed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie Myers | 4/10/2012

    " Not, perhaps, one of Maeve Binchy's finest works... but I still enjoyed it. I think I would enjoy reading a grocery list, if Maeve wrote it! She has a way with words that is oddly like music to me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kayla M | 12/17/2011

    " The end was too perfect, it ruined the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 10/11/2011

    " Very nice story of four people from different countries and cultures unexpectedly meeting in a Greek Island. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannan | 9/28/2011

    " Not my favorite Maeve Binchy. But it made me want to visit Greece. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizzie | 9/22/2011

    " I found it quite disappointing. In all of Maeve Binchy's that I have read I have found that I have got to know the characters really well whereas with this one I felt more detached from them. It was a great summer beach read, but somewhat disappointing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katy | 8/25/2011

    " I spent time this weekend escaping into the lives of travelers running from their lives. Not worth the time and I'm kind of embarrassed for Miss Binchy to have her name on the cover and to say that I read it... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 8/13/2011

    " Sweet story, set in a town in greece. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dee | 5/16/2011

    " This was an okay read.
    Travelers with a lot of "baggage" meet unexpectedly at a small coastal Greek town and share their problems with locals, who in turn share their problems with the travelers.
    Relationships are formed and personal insights are gained. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/5/2011

    " Liked it a lot! I cried. (lots). It was interesting to me, the details of the town and the people's lives. My only problem was it was predictable. The ending. "

    " One of my very favorites by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 TaniaM | 4/25/2011

    " Uma história muito engraçada que tendo como pano de fundo a Grécia se torna ainda mais apelativa, com personagens aliciantes, uma amálgama de nacionalidades e histórias de amor complexas! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tristy | 4/17/2011

    " This book was so boring, it was painful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 4/9/2011

    " It's amazing what you'll read when you're in Italy and you've run out of English books to read and this is the only thing on the swap shelf in the hotel in Positano.
    Thank heavens we now have Kindles... "

    " Easy, fast read. I liked the characters. Not as good as I remember a couple of her others that I've read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dawn | 2/28/2011

    " Torture. Bad writing and a plot did not exist. "
