When the three friends come together after such a long separation, they find themselves looking at the choices they have made in life and in love, and can't help but wonder - if they were to do it all again, would they wish for the same things? A warm and sophisticated tale of friendship, family, and love from bestselling Irish author Fiona O'Brien. On an autumn day in 1981, three schoolgirls write their petitions for love at St Valentine's shrine in Whitefriar St Church, Dublin. Thirty years later, freelance journalist Vonnie unexpectedly returns home from her life in California and reunites with her two friends: Abby, now married to a plastic surgeon, desperate to maintain the facade of a perfect life, and Diana, a high-powered businesswoman. As the three friends examine their lives, they learn that finding love was the easy part ...it's what comes afterwards that proves complicated. If they were to do it all again, would they wish for the same things? And does St Valentine still have some surprises in store?
