A wry and life-affirming novel from the internationally bestselling author

Marian Keyes’ inimitable blend of rollicking humor, effervescent prose, and stories that deal with real-life issues have captivated readers around the globe. She is one of the bestselling authors of women’s fiction in the English-speaking world. Her new novel will delight fans of Candace Bushnell’s darkly comic sensibility and Sophie Kinsella’s fast-paced action.

The Brightest Star in the Sky follows seven neighbors whose lives become entangled when a sassy and prescient spirit pays a visit to their Dublin townhouse with the intent of changing at least one of their lives. But what will this metamorphosis be and who will the sprite choose? 

There’s Matt and Maeve, the newlyweds struggling to overcome the first obstacle in their storybook romance; Lydia, the brassy but vulnerable cabbie; Katie, the just-turned-forty PR executive searching for a more gratifying life; and the eldest resident, Jemima, currently playing hostess to her son Fionn, who is in town to star as the hunky gardener in a hot new television show.

Keyes’ universal themes and appealing characters have made her an international phenomenon, and are sure to conquer a wider American audience. With The Brightest Star in the Sky, she delivers another satisfying story charming in its wit and surprising in its depth.

    " Delightful novel, with surprising twists and depth. All the more lovely to have it read to me in audio with a colorful Irish brogue. "

    " This book took me by surprise. There are so many characters that you feel like this possibly couldn't have any decent content because of the sheer number of people involved. It reminded me of the movies Love Actually and Valentine's Day. Many people to learn about and try to love. This story however was quite Grand as Katie would say. I really got into their heads and was able to learn about these people. Also I thought I was able to guess what was going to happen and then a twist occurred. Threw me for a loop there but I loved it. Nothing worse then knowing what is going to happen before you get there. "

    " Really a can't-put-down. The book really makes you curious... In the beginning, that's why I kept reading, because I was curious as to whom was speaking, but after that it just draws you in completely. I really enjoyed this read. =) "
