Tara Flynn has come along way since she was a little girl growing up in the village of Ballygrace. Now mistress of Ballygrace House, the beautiful mansion overlooking the Tullamore countryside, Tara has everything she's always wanted - security, a beautiful home, and the love of a good man. But the Irish have an expression - 'the two days', meaning good and bad fortune. Tara may have everything she's ever dreamed of, but can she hold on to it?

In Stockport, Tara's dear friend Biddie has problems of her own. She too has escaped a troubled past and built a new life. But when her husband is seriously injured, Biddie must once again begin taking care of herself. As Tara's half-sister arrives at her boarding-house, Biddie realises she'll need eyes in the back of her head if she's to keep both Angela and herself out of trouble.

Set in the Ireland and England of the early 1960s, Tara's Fortune is the story of two women making their way in the world; a touching, heart-warming tale of friendship and ambition, with the irresistible warmth that hallmarks Geraldine O'Neill's writing.
