WHAT THE CRITICS SAY
Harrington's gift as a storyteller ... always gripping, endearing, convincing.
A popular voice in Irish publishing, often compared to the beloved Maeve Binchy, Harrington focuses her books on relationships, with a strong emotional overlay.

Her books are like a hug, they envelop you ... clever, finely honed, they make you think and make you grateful.
