“This tale of love, friendship, redemption, growing up, and moving on is a lovely swan song for the beloved author.” —Vicki Briner, LIBRARY JOURNAL
“A final love letter to her legion of fans…the late great Binchy’s last hurrah does not disappoint.
“In classic Binchy-style, this gentle story is populated with a large cast of often eccentric, always endearing characters who effortlessly weave their way in and out of a deceptively simple narrative.
“Stone House, a country inn on the West Coast of Ireland, is owned and operated by Chicky Starr, a Stoneybridge native lately returned after living a largely lonely life in the U.S., and it serves as the cozy setting for these interrelated tales of love, loss, friendship, and community. Specializing in winter holidays, Stone House plays host to a variety of guests whose lives are bound to change for the better once they succumb to both its vintage charms and the restorative powers of companionship and human kindness.
“Pour yourself a cup of tea, put your feet up, and prepare to savor this bit of comfort food for the soul. Published posthumously, it is an appropriately heartwarming and spirit restoring swan song.”
—Margaret Flanagan, BOOKLIST
“Classic Binchy…Her fans will find solace as hearts mend and relationships sort themselves out one last time.”
—KIRKUS, in a starred review
