"A novel of ambition, family secrets and the search for love. Katie Horgan is going places: soon she'll be a partner in the prestigious law firm where she works. Her love life, on the other hand, is going nowhere. That is, until she meets Jim Donnelly. Jim is brilliant, handsome and, like her parents, Irish. The only problem is that he already has a girlfriend ... When Katie is sent to Ireland as part of her training, she happily settles into life in Dublin where she works in a clinic that provides free legal advice to the homeless. She befriends Mags who is warm and quirky and comes with a big entourage of friends. When she's not working or socialising, Katie is trying to track down her long-lost extended family. The icing on the cake is when Jim Donnelly comes home on a visit, but as their relationship deepens, Mags friendliness cools. Then disaster strikes and there are many shocks in store for Katie as everyone - including her parents - shows their true colours. Life and love are not as black and white as Katie always thought ..."--Provided by publisher.
