Four women must face their past before they can look to the future…


In the sleepy Irish coastal town of Avalon the big house on Willow Street has stood for generations…

Tess Power grew up there, but now, from her cosy cottage shared with teenage son Zach and nine-year-old Kitty, Tess faces a crumbling marriage and a dwindling antiques business.


Tess’s feisty sister Suki shook Avalon’s dust off her feet years ago but when she unwittingly becomes the focus of a dirt-digging biographer, Suki looks to her sister and the town/place she vowed to forget…


Lively, exuberant  Mara seeks the sanctuary of Avalon and her solitary Aunt Danae to put her life and her newly married ex behind her.  As the village post-mistress, Danae can always be relied upon – but beneath her gentle exterior, she guards her past as carefully as Avalon’s letters and secrets.


But the big house is up for sale….and with it its memories, especially for Cashel, who returns to the town for the first time in many years with the ghosts of the distant past – and the woman he swore to forget – still haunting him.
