Synopsis

Homecoming by Cathy Kelly

Eleanor Levine left Ireland years ago with just a suitcase and her mother's recipe book. And now, a lifetime later, she returns from New York for Dublin's beautiful Golden Square full of memories and hard-won wisdom. As she watches life unfold from her window, she is drawn into the lives of the women who live in the square...Beautful actress Megan Bouchier had fame and success in her grasp - then she made the wrong kind of headlines. Now she needs a place to hide. Big-hearted teacher Connie O'Callaghan is approaching forty and has given up on love. Why does no man match the heroes in her romantic novels? Rae is a loyal friend and wife, dispensing tea and sympathy from Titania's Tea Room - until a secret threatens everything she holds dear...
