It's my turn on the Blog Tour for this wonderful story of friendship, love, loss and a sense of community and you can read my review below. I truly loved this book and all the characters in it.
Elizabeth is the local GPs widow, but apart from grieving, she has come across crippling gambling debts racked up by her husband and it is now down to her to sort them out before she becomes homeless.
Jo is determined to help her friend Elizabeth out, even if she has to enlist her daughter Lucy who is a doctor, to come and help out in the village until Elizabeth can see light at the end of the tunnel. Lucy's son Niall comes with her but would rather be with his dad in Sydney, Australia than at a local school with other teenagers who he knows he would have nothing in common with.
When writer Dan comes to Ballycove looking for inspiration on writing a book, little does he know that it will change his life forever. He hates living in London and he has another, more personal, reason for coming to Ballycove. Will there be anyone who is willing to tell him the truth?
What could you possibly do on a dark, cold, winter's night when you need to clear your mind? Go for a swim at midnight in the Irish sea of course! That's what Jo does every night (weather permitting) and she soon ropes Elizabeth in to joining her and when Lucy also tags along, The Ladies' Midnight Swimming Club is born. Little did the ladies know that this small, exclusive club will become a lifeline not just for them, but for everyone in the village.
A powerful story of love, loss, friendship, relationships and everything else in between...I loved it!
It is a charming read and I finished it within just a few days. I can't wait to read more by this author.
