Book Jacket 

Set, like Maeve Binchy’s early best sellers, in late 1950s Ireland and New York, this is the story of three women and the charismatic man with whom their lives are interwoven.

Patrick Murphy has the charm to burn and a singing voice to die for. Many people will recognise his talent. Many women will love him. Rose, the sweetheart he leaves behind in Ireland, can never forget him and will move heaven and earth to find him again, long after he has married another woman. Ava, the heiress with no self-confidence except on the dance floor, falls under his spell. And tough Sheila Klein, orphaned by the Holocaust and hungry for success as a music manager, she will be ruthless in her determination to unlock his extraordinary star quality.

But in the end, Patrick Murphy’s heart belongs to only one of them. Which one will it be?

My Review 

The cover of It Was Only Ever You is beautiful with all the pink embossed lettering and they crisp white border it’s very appealing. Definitely, something I would have picked up in the book store.

The book was very emotional for me, with Patrick Murphy at the core. This truly handsome devil has a heart choice to make and we get to see the journey that has brought him to it.  You will be rooting for your own choice of Rose, Sheila or Ava. Three very different women.

The book was a lovely read for me, with a pleasant pace. It definitely is a book with heart.  If you are a fan of romantic fiction then I would not delay in buying this for your TBR. It gives you so much and then a little bit more.

I loved Kate Kerrigan’s Ellis Island and now I can add It Was Only Ever You to my list of top reads too. In reviewing this book, I did some research and discovered that Ellis Island is now a trilogy of books. So excited to read those too.

It also won The Romantic Historical Novel of the year.
