The Brightest Star in the Sky




International best-seller Marian Keyes, author of Sushi for Beginners, This Charming Man and the award-winning Anybody Out There, explores love, life and secrets in The Brightest Star in the Sky.

'June the first, a bright summer's evening, a Monday . . . '

And into the busy, bustling homes at 66 Star Street slips, unseen, a mysterious visitor. As the couples, flatmates and repentant singletons of No 66 fall in and out of love, clutch at and drop secrets, laugh, cry and simply try to live, no one suspects the visitor patiently waiting in the wings. For soon, really very soon, everything is going to change . . .
