Echoes Summary


Echoes by Maeve Binchy

Growing up in a small seaside town in the 1950s, Clare O'Brien and David Power shout their hearts' desired into the echo cave, praying that their destiny will lead them faraway from the town in which they live. Years later they meet again in Dublin, where DAvid is studying medicine and Clare has won a scholarship to University College. But eventurally Castlebay will draw them back and it is against a backdrop of empty grey skies, sea-spray and wind that this drama of ambition, betrayal and love finally reaches it turbulent conclusion.
