Noel and Lisa adore their little girl, Frankie, and with the help of their friends, Declan and Fiona, Lizzie and Muttie and Aidan and Signora, they work hard to give her a happy and secure home. But in fact neither of them are Frankie's parents. They are there first because of a promise, and they stayed because Frankie has become a life-line to them both. For Noel, looking after Frankie has been his salvation. An alcoholic, he knew nothing about Frankie until her mother told him she was pregnant, he was the father, and she needed him to take care of the baby. Lisa gave up a good job for the man she loved, determined to help him set up his business. But nothing turned out as expected. Not everyone is keen to support Noel and Lisa in their efforts. Marian is a social worker, and absolutely sure an ex-alcoholic is not a suitable parent. But her own life is not as straightforward as she would have everyone believe.

Maeve Binchy never misses the mark. A lovely story full of colourful characters who come into and out of each others lives in a believable way. Maeve does not shy away from sadness and human pain, which stops her views of village life from being too saccharine. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this tale ahd sharing the lives of the people therein as I drove to and from work each day.
