In a small Greek island village, a group of travelers from around the world and the local residents they encounter are brought together in unexpected ways when sudden tragedy strikes. In her inimitable style, Maeve Binchy shares with readers the lives of these strangers, learning their hopes, dreams, and fears as they move forward, forever changed by their experience.

Here is the story of old Andreas, the gentle taverna owner who has spent many years regretting the argument that drove his only son to America; Elsa, the beautiful German reporter who gave up her television career and the man she loves once she learned the secret he hid from her; and Fiona, the Irish nurse and dutiful daughter, who's gone off to travel with the man everyone says is wrong for her, determined to show them all, even if everyone is right. This is also the story of David, the only son who loves his family but not the family business; Thomas, the Californian who is able to cope with his recent divorce but not with sharing his son with his wife's new husband; and Vonni, who rashly left behind her life in Ireland to follow her true love to this village 30 years ago, and who is wise for everyone but herself.

A story that only Maeve Binchy could tell, told with the authenticity, charm, and grace that are her trademark, Nights of Rain and Stars will be rightly cherished by her millions of fans around the world. Download and start listening now!

    " I probably wouldn't have read it if it had not been a book club assignment. That said, it did keep me enough interested to finish it. "

    " A very light read. I liked other Maeve Binchy that I have read better. This one didn't involve me very much. A group of tourists meet on a Greek island and get to know one another, and we see how their lives evolve and how everything ends up for them. One thing I like about Binchy is how her characters overlap all of her books. Fiona, and maybe others, is mentioned in other books. "

    " The four stars is for writing an entrancing book in which I can lose myself and forget my worries. The definition of "great literature" depends on what the reader is needing from the literature? "
