Winner of the RNA Historical Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2017.

Heartbreak and misunderstandings are woven through this uplifting story of a woman who can never quite believe that her gorgeous husband really loves her. Set, like Maeve Binchy's early bestsellers, in late 1950s Ireland and New York, this is the story of three women and the charismatic man with whom their lives are interwoven.

Synopsis

It Was Only Ever You by Kate Kerrigan

Patrick Murphy has charm to burn and a singing voice to die for. Many people will recognise his talent. Many women will love him. Rose, the sweetheart he leaves behind in Ireland, can never forget him and will move heaven and earth to find him again, long after he has married another woman. Ava, the heiress with no self-confidence except on the dance floor, falls under his spell. And tough Sheila Klein, orphaned by the Holocaust and hungry for success as a music manager, she will be ruthless in her determination to unlock his extraordinary star quality. But in the end, Patrick Murphy's heart belongs to only one of them. Which one will it be?
