From the time Maggie Faraday was born to her seventeen-year-old mother, Clementine Faraday, she has been surrounded by love. Her four aunts and her grandfather, Leo, have spoiled her. Having never known her grandmother, Maggie still has a loving and caring family with whom she can consult on a regular basis. But a crisis sends Maggie to New York to recover on her own and about the time she is ready to face the world again, Leo finds her and gives her a unique proposition. It involves Maggie coming to Ireland along with her aunts and reading a set of diaries written by her long-gone grandmother. Diaries that should have been burned years ago and have the potential to tear apart a family who has barely held together for all of these years because of a past that they have protected Maggie from.

Maggie has also met a guy whom Leo suspects harbors deeper feelings for her than Maggie realizes. Never one to pass up a good opportunity, Leo fits him neatly into the Ireland trip. The whole crazy plan is hanging by a thin thread, threatening to throw the whole family into utter chaos at any moment. Maggie will have to make a decision in the end – a decision that could keep the family she has known her whole life together or tear them viciously apart.


Monica McInerney has put together the perfect story of all the secrets, desires, fights, and laughter a large family goes through, no matter where they are from. Monica McInerney takes you from Australia to Ireland and you feel as if you were right there with the family, struggling and laughing and hurting along with them. This powerful story will keep you entranced until the surprise ending.
