Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 19 November 2009.

Marion Keyes brings a whole host of characters together in this funny and sad book. A mystery narrator carries the story along as we delve into the lives of several characters living in flats in the same house in Dublin. As usual Marian will have you laughing one minute and crying the next and lamenting the fact that you have reached the last page. A great read.

If you like Marian Keyes you might also like to read books by Lisa Jewell, Elizabeth Noble and Nathan Filer.

Synopsis

The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes

At 66, Star Street in Dublin, someone is watching over the lives of the people living in its flats. But no one is aware of it - yet...One of them is ready to take the plunge and fall in love; another is torn between two very different lovers. For some, secrets they want to stay buried will come to light and for others, the unveiling of those secrets will have tragic consequences. Fate is on its way to Star Street, bringing with it love and tragedy, friendship and heartbreak, and the power to change their lives in the most unexpected of ways...
