Everybody's worried about Becky. She's too rich, too young, and much too cute for her own good. And she's driving her friends and family to distraction, playing fast and loose with the bored housewives she meets through Girl Power, the offshoot of Marsten Builders, which she co-runs with her best friend, Frankie.
When she hears Niamh busking in the center of town, Becky is stunned by the intensity of her attraction to the itinerant young musician. The feeling is mutual. For Niamh, Becky has a familiar feel that reminds her of the home and family she has lost, and she quickly finds herself looking for ways to meet this intriguing young woman again.
Both women are deeply wary of any kind of new relationship. Their early experiences have left them wounded and vulnerable. But for some reason, they can't help but trust each other.
But even as the pair are taking their first shaky steps toward love, they begin to realize that their apparent chance meeting is already part of a much bigger drama unfolding. Events of the past are starting to catch up with them, and they are about to be faced with challenges and decisions that will change their lives forever....

Where is my box of tissues?
Let me just say: I love this book!!! It is my favourite by the author. Maybe that is why I have so much difficulty writing this review.
Why do I love this story? The reasons are manifold. One is that it has the classical drama of Romeo and Juliet. Two star-crossed lovers, the universe against them, overpowering love ... tragedy. One of the other reasons is, that the characters of the story really come alive for the reader - the author reveals a deep understanding of the human psyche and motivations. But it is not only the realistic characters she draws, there are also some very beautiful pictures she creates. I think I will never look at a street-musician the same way or at a sand-castle for that matter.
It's the small things that make this book truly remarkable - so if you love a tear-jerker I must advise you to read this book.
