It began with Benny Hogan and Eve Malone, growing up, inseparable, in the village of Knockglen. Benny?the only child, yearning to break free from her adoring parents...Eve?the orphaned offspring of a convent handyman and a rebellious blueblood, abandoned by her mother's wealthy family to be raised by nuns. Eve and Benny?they knew the sins and secrets behind every villager's lace curtains...except their own.
It widened at Dublin, at the university where Benny and Eve met beautiful Nan Mahlon and Jack Foley, a doctor's handsome son. But heartbreak and betrayal would bring the worlds of Knockglen and Dublin into explosive collision. Long-hidden lies would emerge to test the meaning of love and the strength of ties held within the fragile gold bands of a...Circle Of Friends.
The narrative centers on the growing pains of Benny, an Irish woman with more problems than her weight. From her shy, reclusive childhood, Benny grows into a woman struggling with the challenges of finding true love, though, surrounded at all times by a warm and loving "circle of friends."
