When there are four feisty women from the same family, you can be sure life isn’t all plain sailing. Marie-Claire, living in Toronto is betrayed by her partner, Marc but takes her revenge in the most exquisite manner, and teaches him a lesson he will never forget. She travels home to Ireland to the house of The Four Winds, for her great aunt, Reverend Mother Brigid’s eightieth birthday celebrations, and meets up with her mother, Keelin and, grandmother, Imelda.
And then all hell breaks loose.
Bitter, jealous Imelda makes a revelation at the party that changes all their lives forever and the women are forced to confront their pasts and face the truths that have shaped their lives. A trip to the mystical Isle of Iona in Scotland brings more revelations, which binds the four of them together on a shared journey that shows that love is greater than the enmity that threatened to sever their relationship in the most devastating way.
Back in the haven of The Four Winds, Marie-Claire, decides upon her future…and then, unexpectedly, Marc arrives. Will she take him back? Is her life about to change to the one she had once longed for? The choice is hers.
