A Week in Winter

A Week in Winter

by Maeve Binchy

Book Description

Stoneybridge is full of holiday-makers in summer, its beaches are full of buckets and spades and sandcastles; but in winter it’s cold and wild. Few choose to walk along the fine sands, the big round pebbles and the exposed rocky promontories that make up the wind-swept Atlantic coastline.

Those who do can’t help but see Stone House, the big house on the cliff; once falling into disrepair it is now a beautiful hotel specialising in winter holidays. Its big, warm kitchen, its open log-fires and its elegant bedrooms provide a welcome few can resist, whatever their reasons for coming.

Henry and Nicola are burdened with a terrible secret, while cheerful nurse Winnie finds herself on the holiday from hell. John has arrived on an impulse after he missed a flight at Shannon; eccentric Freda claims to be a psychic – and a part-time hairdresser. Then there’s Nora, a silent watchful older woman who seems ready to disapprove at any moment…

A Week in Winter is full of Maeve’s trademark warmth, humour and characters you want to spend time with.
