Am Ende eines langen Sommers

Am Ende eines langen Sommers

Author: Kathleen MacMahon Format: eBook Release Date: 17/03/2016

Die McEntees sind ein irischer Familienclan wie aus dem Bilderbuch, liebevoll, verruckt, tragisch, dickkopfig und idealistisch, und wenn es darauf ankommt, trotz aller Uneinigkeiten fureinander da. Wahrend Familienoberhaupt Deirdre ihren 80. Geburtstag plant und Irland einen ungewohnlich heien Sommer erlebt, gehen die McEntees durch so manchen Sturm: Da ist der Diebstahl einer Pfeffermuhle mit unvorhersehbaren Folgen, ein offentlicher Eklat, eine neue und eine alte Liebe und schlielich ein tragischer Unfall, der alles andere belanglos erscheinen lasst. Am Ende werden die McEntees tun, was eine Familie eben tut: sich gegenseitig wieder aufrichten. Und wir verabschieden uns mit dem wunderbaren Gefuhl, fur eine Weile Teil dieser Familie gewesen zu sein.
