|With each new book, Maeve Binchy continues a remarkable progression of sales and audience growth, reaching fans of all ages and backgrounds with her matchless wit, warmth, and sheer storytelling magic. Tara Road, her first full-length novel since The Glass Lake, again shows her incomparable understanding of the human heart in the tale of two women, one from Ireland, one from America, who switch lives, and in doing so learn much about each other, as well as much about themselves.Ria lived on Tara Road in Dublin with her dashing husband, Danny, and their two children. She fully believed she was happily married, right up until the day Danny told her he was leaving her to be with his young, pregnant girlfriend. By a chance phone call, Ria meets Marilyn, a woman from New England unable to come to terms with her only son's death and now separated from her husband. The two women exchange houses for the summer with extraordinary consequences, each learning that the other has a deep secret that can never be revealed.Drawn into lifestyles vastly differing from their own, at first each resents the news of how well the other is getting on. Ria seems to have become quite a hostess, entertaining half the neighborhood, which at first irritates the reserved and withdrawn Marilyn, a woman who has always guarded her privacy. Marilyn seems to have become bosom friends with Ria's children, as well as with Colm, a handsome restaurateur, whom Ria has begun to miss terribly. At the end of the summer, the women at last meet face-to-face. Having learned a great deal, about themselves and about each other, they find that they have become, firmly and forever, good friends.A moving storyrendered with the deft touch of a master artisan, Tara Road is Maeve Binchy at her very best utterly beautiful, hauntingly unforgettable, entirely original, and wholly enjoyable.|

Tara Road by Maeve Binchy
Family saga story - spans about 16 years in the life of a Dublin family - the center character is Ria. Ria 's life goes through twists and turns and you can't help but become part of her family life. I don't want to give the plot away - so I will just say this fussy person (me) loved the book and will be looking for more by Maeve Binchy. Listen or read the unabridged version - too good to leave parts out. Since I'm done with my copy I'll list it on eBay - I urge you to pass it along after listening too. qqqgal123 (eBay store - SaveOnVintage)
You’ll have a hard time putting it down!
I love all of Maeve Binchy’s books, and Tara Road was no exception! Well written, interesting and absorbing characters and story telling at its best! I enjoyed every page, and hated to see it end. It’s a keeper!
