Description
"In this collection of stories, Maeve Binchy brings us sons and lovers, daughters and strangers, husbands and wives in their infinite variety - powerfully compelling stories of love, loss, revelation, and reconciliation. A secretary's silent passion for her boss meets the acid test on a business trip... A man and a woman's mutual disdain at first sight shows how deceptive appearances can be.... An insecure wife clings to the illusion of order, only to discover chaos at the hands of a house sitter who opens the wrong doors.... A pair of star-crossed travelers take each other's bags, and then learn that when you unlock a stranger's suitcase, you enter a stranger's life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
