Tara Road is the story of two women -- one Irish, one American, both struggling to overcome personal tragedies -- who agree to swap houses for the summer. Ria and her husband, Danny, live in a magnificent old house they have restored together. But her posh Dublin address loses much of its charm when Danny leaves her for his young, pregnant girlfriend. A chance phone call from grief-stricken Marilyn in New England provides both women with a welcome refuge from their shattered lives. But in exchanging houses, they also unwittingly take on aspects of each other's vastly different lives -- not always without new conflict. Though literally an ocean apart, when the two women at last meet face-to-face at summer's end, they find that they have not only learned each other's deepest secrets, but that they have become good friends.

This one was particularly difficult to get into. The first half of the book was very slow moving. If this was my first Binchy book I would have given up on it. I spent too much time waiting for the shoe to drop. Once it got going I enjoyed it, though. It was not my favourite by any means. I found the characters a bit over the top soapy and was annoyed with them as well.

I read this book back in 2004. When I watched The Holiday with Cameron Diaz and Jack Black, I couldn't help thinking that that movie was based on this book.

A very slow film. Unrealistic romance. Not recommended.

Maeve's books are hard to put down once you start reading them.
