9780099498667: Firefly Summer

It was a summer of warmth.... Kate Ryan and her  husband, John, have a rollicking pub in the Irish  village of Mountfern... lovely twelve-year-old  twins... and such wonderful dreams.... It was a summer  of innocence... but all that is about to change  this fateful summer of 1962 when American  millionaire Patrick O'Neill comes to town with his  irresistible charm and a pocketful of money... when love  and hate vie for a town's quiet heart and old  traditions begin to crumble away.... It was a summer of  love that would never come again.... A time that  has been captured forever in Maeve Binchy's  compelling family drama... a novel you will never forget.

From the Back Cover:

"Totally engrossing.... Unforgettable.... An absolutely grand story.... A lyrical and compelling family drama.... Mountfern and its residents come vibrantly alive."
-- The Plain Dealer.

"The secrets hidden behind lace curtains, a young girl's first kiss, children's summer games, unexpected pregnancies, sudden deaths. She makes us feel as if we also know the place and the people.... One of those good old-fashioned stories that are as comfortable and comforting as home itself."
-- The Philadelphia Inquirer

Kate and John Ryan have four children, of whom the eldest are Michael and Dara. Their small town is peaceful and friendly, an unchanging background for a golden childhood. In long, hot summers Michael and Dara and their friends fish and swim or play in the ivy-clad ruins of Fernscourt, when the great house burnt down during the Troubles.No one in Mountfern has the slightest inkling of what it will mean when the ruins are bought by Patrick O Neill, an Irish American with a dream in his heart and a great deal of money in his pocket. It is not until the very end of this drama, with its interlocking stories of love lost and won, ambitions nurtured and secrets betrayed, that Patrick O Neill will understand the irony and the significance of his great dream for Mountfern.
