Stoneybridge is a small town on the west coast of Ireland where all the families know one another When Chicky Starr decides to take an old decaying mansion set high on the cliffs overlooking the windswept Atlantic Ocean and turn it into a restful place for a holiday by the sea everyone thinks she is crazy Helped by Rigger a bad boy turned good who is handy around the house and Orla her niece a whiz at business Chicky is finally ready to welcome the first guests to Stone House’s big warm kitchen log fires and understated elegant bedrooms John the American movie star thinks he has arrived incognito Winnie and Lillian are forced into taking a holiday together Nicola and Henry husband and wife have been shaken by seeing too much death practicing medicine Anders hates his father’s business but has a real talent for music Miss Nell Howe a retired schoolteacher criticizes everything and leaves a day early much to everyone’s relief the Walls are disappointed to have won this second prize holiday in a contest where first prize was Paris and Freda the librarian is afraid of her own psychic visions Sharing a week with this unlikely cast of characters is pure joy full of Maeve’s trademark warmth and humor Once again she embraces us with her grand storytelling This is the last book that Maeve Binchy wrote before her sudden death As are all her stories it is her trademark warmth humor and the kind of characters that will make her books live on It is a privilege to be able to share this book with readers

    I started out really liking this book I loved the premise of setting up a hotel in Ireland and found all the preparations exciting The first half of the book largely focused on the life of the woman setting up the hotel and it was enjoyable However the book became very boring once the hotel was established During the second half of the book each chapter focused on a new character or characters and their story that brought them to the hotel and a sort of redemption from the time spent in Ireland during their week stay It felt like a book of short stories It also seemed a little shallow and forced when person after person had some major life problem when they arrived at the hotel which was then resolved during their stay My biggest disappointment though was that the book ended after the last character's story I had hoped that stories would be revisited at the end and the story would circle back to characters but that never happened The end result was that I felt like I bonded with no one The book is a light hearted warm read and could be nice as a vacation book but I was generally not very impressed
