  • Multi-Layered Tales & Highly Entertaining!

    I could have sworn I had read all of Maeve Binchy’s books, but when I re-read some during my summer break I discovered a couple I had managed to miss. This is the first chance I’ve had to indulge in one, and this short story collection was perfect during the run up to Christmas when I had such a lot of things to do! Having read most of Maeve’s novels over the years – and several of them two or three times – I am familiar with her trademark warmth and wit but I’m not sure I ever really appreciated her understanding of how people work before now. She has a deep knowledge of the human psyche which is easily missed if you take her stories at face value when, in fact, they are multi layered and all highly entertaining. What I really didn’t expect was to find my name as a character in one tale – that has never happened before! I loved the introduction to this book by Maeve’s husband, Gordon Snell, who summed up her qualities better than anyone else ever could. Maeve Binchy was one of those rare authors who NEVER disappointed and I’m so very glad to have finally read this one; I’m pretty sure I’ll read it again at some future time. I really cannot recommend this anthology highly enough and, needless to say, it is easily due a full house of sparkling stars!

  • Like an old friend

    It was wonderful to hear Maeve's voice again. Like sitting down with an old friend and just letting her words take you into her world once more. Loved it,
