The story follows the lives of the now adult children and Miranda and how they come back home to Ireland to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the mill.
This is a great story. It is not a thriller or a mystery.
I have enjoyed all the books this author has written and am anxious to read more of her work.
A charming tale set in Ireland.
In this story, nothing worked as a reader might expect, and yet, everything worked out perfectly. I enjoyed reading about Miranda and her family and her work family at the woolen mills.

I feel like I’ve just binge-watched my next favourite series on Netflix. It’s a case of once you start you just can’t stop!
Do I need to duck for cover when I make this admission? *winces* Okay, here goes – this was my first Faith Hogan read...
I know, right? Calm your jets! (Yup, I totally wanted to say something else here, but *shrugs* this is the PG version *snorts*.) In my defence, I will just say it’s that old adage of ‘too many books not enough time’ and I want to thank the person who waved this book under my nose.
Told via past and present, and multiple POVs, TPWCH is a bewitching and beautifully written (saga) story about the lives, relationships, and secrets of the Corrigan family. Yet, that feels too simplistic an explanation. Harrumph, I’m not at my most articulate this morning it would appear *smirks*.
Every decision we make in life has a consequence, some good some bad, and the ramifications can be felt for generations to come. Sorry, I know I’m being a little mysterious, but you’ll understand once you’ve read the book (which I fervently hope you will).
I found myself holding my breath so many times whilst reading. As well as sharp intakes of breath, lots of ooohhh’s, awwww’s, giggles and smiles. I was also reaching for my metaphorical cushion to hide behind, lol. Were there tears? Maybe... *snorts*
I loved the matriarch of the family, Miranda. What a life she has led! If I had to use one word to describe her it would be love. Her heart is overflowing with love for not just for her family, but the land and people of Ballycove.
Her children were another matter entirely, lol. I’ll just say it was complicated and leave it at that because the way we started out wasn’t where we ended up.
Don’t laugh, but I feel all lost at sea now I’ve finished as if part of me is still in Ballycove. I’ll just have to take 5, make a cuppa and reacclimatise myself to the real world.
Ugh, the perils of being a reader!
