#1 international bestselling author Cathy Kelly weaves a captivating tale about love, friendship, and a web of secrets running through a bustling Irish town.

You never have to go very far...

Kenny's Department Store isn't just a place to shop; it's the heart of Ardagh, Ireland. Behind its stately Edwardian facade is an up-to-date store featuring unusual boutique products in an elegant setting. Here lives intersect...and secrets hide. TV reporter Ingrid Fitzgerald has watched her husband, David Kenny, pour his heart and soul into the family store -- the "other woman" in her marriage -- for years. Now, as their children fly the nest, Ingrid discovers something that will shake her world to its foundation.

...to see that you aren't alone.

Charlie Fallon is a dedicated Kenny's employee who adores her husband and son, but her selfish, dominating mother seems determined to ruin everything. Free spirit Star Bluestone, who sells her beautifully crafted tapestries at Kenny's, has her own secrets and wisdom to share. But when unexpected tragedy shocks everyone at Kenny's and threatens its future, the women of Ardagh find that secrets have a way of always coming out -- with repercussions that lead them to rely on one another more than ever before.
