Warm humorous, sad and happy, this delightful Christmas collection, set in Australia and around the world, shows Maeve Binchy weaving her storytelling magic. Families, friends, lovers and the lonely - Binchy draws us into their lives with wisdom and generosity. After reading This Year it will be Different·, you'll want to visit them all over again.
