Is is possible to tell the story of a generation and a city through the history of a restaurant? Ella Brady thinks so. She wants to film a documentary about Quentins that will capture the spirt of Dublin from the 1970's to the present day. After all, the restaurant saw the people of a city become more confident in everything, from their lifestyles to the food that they chose to eat. And Quentins has a thousand stories to tell: tales of love, of betrayal, of revenge; of times when it looked ready for success and of times when it seemed as if it must close in failure.

As with all her books, utterly forgettable when you are done but hard to put down when you are reading it. She is a good storyteller, but in the end her stories are just pulp fiction with little to take away.

Typical Binchy writing. I found the lead- Ella a particularly stupid character, though. It was slow to start and then picked up. Some characters from other books make appearances.

Very readable,Ive enjoyed all of her books read so far, They are not ,as I was told, just for middle aged women.
