Four strangers, with nothing in common but a need to escape, meet in a Greek taverna high above the small village of Aghia Anna. From Ireland, America, Germany and England, they have each left their homes and their old lives, when a shocking tragedy throws them unexpectedly together.Fiona is a young nurse, trying to make her family understand her need to follow her own path. Thomas desperately misses his young son and fears that his ex-wife will come between them. Elsa abruptly left her career as a television presenter, but someone from her past refuses to let her go. And shy, quiet David is determined to make a stand against his overbearing father. With these four is Andreas, the taverna owner, who badly misses the son who left home nine years ago and has never returned.Nights of Rain and Stars is the story of one summer and four people, each with a life in turmoil. With the help of Vonnie, a middle-aged Irishwoman who lives in the village and is now a near-native, they find solutions ndash; though not necessarily the ones they anticipated...

I am listening to the audio version of this book. While I tend to very much enjoy Binchy's work, and having Greek heritage in my family, I thought I would enjoy it. However, I am finding it tedious and repetitive and just wanting it to be over. If I was reading it I perhaps would have skimmed pages (or chapters).

A departure from her early works, this short novel will still transport you—this time to a warm Greek island where four strangers come together, build friendships, and sort out their life crises. A perfect holiday read.

The authors books that I've read have several characters that meet as strangers and form a bond. She has a way of imparting wisdom between the characters that is though provoking.

An overly simplistic, formulatic story of four people who run away from their lives and meet on a small island in Greece. My first read of Binchy, unfortunately.

My favourite Maeve book! I have read ALL of hers and love them, but this one was amazing. Made me want to visit Greece.
