Synopsis

Connections by Sheila O'Flanagan

In this wonderful collection of interlinked short stories Sheila O'Flanagan transports her readers to the Caribbean island resort of White Sands, where visitors arrive hoping their dreams will come true - which they sometimes do. In touching, poignant and delicious tales of life by the ocean, Sheila introduces some of the most likeable and interesting characters she's created. There's Tara, who's arrived with the man she wants to marry only to find that a rejected lover is planning to get in the way; Grainne, who's been sent with her husband by their children to celebrate the anniversary of a shotgun wedding twenty-five years earlier, and who thinks the time has come to move on - or has it? Rudy's on an idyllic break with his young son which is set for an unexpected ending; and Isobel - of ISOBEL'S WEDDING - has arrived with no idea that her ex-lover Nico might be staying just next door. Romance is very much alive in the hot Caribbean nights.
