Tara Road (by Maeve Binch)

'Tara Road' is a long saga novel by Maeve Binchy.

This book begins from the point of view of Ria, who falls in love with and marries Danny, a smooth businessman. They buy an old, huge house and slowly renovate it. Gradually tensions creep in, and the mid-saga crisis is not unexpected.

We then meet Marilyn, an American woman, who does a house-swap with Ria for two months. Each discovers new things about the other as they embark on their cultural adventures....

Superbly intricate plots and sub-plots, surprising (although believable) revelations, and delightful characters.

Recommended.
