More About This Title One Summer


This summer on the island, anything is possible—in a heartwarming tale for fans of Maeve Binchy

On a small island off the west coast of Ireland there's a cottage at the edge of the sea that was once owned by a faith healer. There's a rumor among the inhabitants of the island that the cottage is magical, and its current owner, Nell, does think it has magic powers—after all, it brought her back to the island from Dublin, it delivered Tim, her fiancé, and now she's planning her wedding to the man she loves. So when Nell decides to rent out the house for six weeks during the summer to raise money for her wedding, deep down, she also hopes that the house works its magic on the vacationers who chose her home over the thousands on the website. And it does, but perhaps not in the way she expected. When Nell's carefully laid plans for the cottage, her tenants, and her wedding begin to unravel, she begins to wonder if we really do choose our destiny or if our fate is already written in the stars.
