Welcome to Ballycove, the home of Corrigan Mills…
Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Irish countryside the famed mills have created the finest wool in all of Ireland. Run by the seemingly perfect Corrigan family, but every family has its secrets, and how the mills came to be the Corrigan’s is one of them…
Miranda and her husband were never meant to own the mills, until one fateful day catapults them into a life they never thought they’d lead.
Ada has forever lived her life in her sister’s shadow. Wanting only to please her mother and take her place as the new leader of the mill, Ada might just have to take a look at what her heart really wants.
Callie has a flourishing international career as a top designer and a man who loves her dearly, she appears to have it all. When a secret is revealed and she’s unceremoniously turfed out of the design world, Callie might just get what’s she’s been yearning for. The chance to go home.
Simon has always wanted more. More money, more fame, more notoriety. The problem child. Simon has made more enemies than friends over the years, and when one of his latest schemes falls foul he’ll have to return to the people who always believe in him.
Ballycove isn’t just a town in the Irish countryside. It isn’t just the base of the famous mills. It’s a place to call home.
Best-selling author, Faith Hogan returns with a family tale of love, loss, secrets and finding yourself.
A Fantastic Read!
Such a fantastic read! It’s no wonder that Faith Hogan is one my very favourite authors!
Miranda has lived in Ballycove all her life, and has never wanted to live anywhere else. Her life has panned out differently from what she expected, but Miranda wouldn’t have it any other way. She is now approaching a time when she should give up work, but only one of her three children wants to follow in her footsteps; Miranda is not convinced that she will keep the successful business thriving, and every local family depends on the income provided to keep food on the table. What is she to do?
This is a wonderfully warm family saga from an author who really understands what makes each and every one of us tick. Creating fabulously diverse characters she does justice to the wonderful Irish countryside, incorporating all the beautiful scenery into this story. Told both in the present and in the past, we learn about all the trials and tribulations Miranda has survived and all about her children, who she knows and understands much better than they realise. A terrifically rounded tale, and wholly complete which ends in the most perfect fashion, I loved everything about this novel and really cannot recommend it, or anything else by this author, highly enough. A full five shining stars – and it deserves each and every one.
My thanks to publisher Aria for my copy via NetGalley and to Vicky Joss for my spot in this tour. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
