Summary

Two women - one Irish, one American - exchange homes for the summer; their unlikely and touching friendship unveils secrets and changes lives. 'An irresistible tale' Elle

Tara Road Summary

Tara Road by Maeve Binchy

A house swap leads to an unlikely and touching friendship, as secrets are unveiled and lives changed.

Ria and Marilyn have never met - they live thousands of miles apart, separated by the Atlantic Ocean: one in a big, warm, Victorian house in Tara Road, Dublin, the other in a modern, open-plan house in New England.

Two more unlikely friends would be hard to find: Ria's life revolves around her family and friends, while Marilyn's reserve is born of grief. But when each needs a place to escape to, a house exchange seems the ideal solution.

Along with the borrowed houses come neighbours and friends, gossip and speculation as Ria and Marilyn swap lives for the summer...
