Friendship and warmth are the hallmarks of Cathy Kelly’s novels and this one is absolutely no exception. Always and Forever interweaves the ever-changing lives of three women – Mel, a high-flying career woman who decides on voluntary redundancy, Frankie, a full-time mother and Sheba who is 23 and yet never left the confines of the hotel her family run. Together, they meet and find out who each of them really are.

Synopsis

Always And Forever by Cathy Kelly

Fairy godmothers exist, even in the tranquil hills of Ireland…

Once upon a time, in the beautiful town of Carrickwell, lived three women. Three women who thought they had life pretty much mapped out. Ambitious Mel had a high-flying career, caring Daisy wanted a child with the boyfriend who was everything to her, and hot-headed Cleo was ready to step into the family business once she’d finished her hotel management degree. Until the landscape shifted and it all came tumbling down.

Now Mel’s job comes second to the guilt of being a working mum-of-two. What should be the most natural thing in the world for Daisy becomes the most torturous. And Cleo has to watch the cherished family business crumble along with her relationship with her parents and siblings. Suddenly everything the three women have always worked for, always desired, looks in jeopardy.

But Carrickwell is a magical place. Nestled in the shadows of Mount Carraig, it’s as ancient as time itself. And the opening of the new Clouds Hill spa by Leah – a woman with her own secret turmoil – is destined to cause ripples no one could ever have imagined. The arrival of Leah brings change for Mel, Daisy and Cleo - and the courage to find out what really matters, always and forever...
