Publisher's Summary

As a child, Elizabeth was sent from her war-torn, rather loveless home in London to stay with a big, boisterous family in a small town in Ireland. There she meets Aisling, and begins what becomes a long-lasting friendship.
Over the next 20 years, Aisling and Elizabeth's paths will cross and re-cross. As they face their loves, their marriages, and their disappointments, they realise that not all problems will be solved, nor all wishes granted by lighting a penny candle.

incredibly frustrating

All good until chapter 19 when the recording wasn't in correct sequence. Terrible purchase.

Good but confusing

I enjoyed the book although it took a couple of chapters to get into it. The presenter was pleasant to listen to and her characters where we'll read.
Not sure why but a chapter or two were skipped in the middle and where then read out of context before the last chapter. The last chapter finished very abruptly and you were left hanging, I am not sure if it was the authors intent or another glitch, so this left me disappointed and wondering where Elizabeth and Ainsling lives ended up.
