Ria cannot believe her luck.  Danny Lynch has arrived in the real estate office and he fancies her and not Rosemary.  That is just not possible.  Rosemary has it all.  Ria is just ordinary.  But it's true.  Danny chooses Ria.  They marry and buy a house on Tara Road.  The house needs lots of work and we follow them through the years as the house grows into a showplace.  Ria and Danny's family grows too.  We meet their friends and share adventures with all of them.  When Ria agrees to trade homes for the summer with a woman from New England, a clearer picture of what life was really like on Tara Road emerges.
