Firefly Summer

AdvantagesAbsolutely Fantastic

DisadvantagesIt ended!!

The story tells how the people of Mountfern cope when 'the American' comes to Mountfern and begins to change everything they know and love. As with other Maeve Binchy books you are drawn into the story without even realising it and begin ..." Read review
