    Light A Penny Candle

    Very entertaining. I read at every opportunity I could. The book was funny at times, thoughtful and shocking at others. A very refreshing change from the murder/mysteries that I normally read. The book was really true to life for the many personalities. It is always fascinating to read of times during the Wars and England and Scotland since I am not from those countries. I would recommend this book to all.

    A good read

    The setting is perfect and you feel transported back in time. The characters are real and the story line was full of twists and kept moving quite fast.... didn't quite know how deal with the abrupt ending though...

    Light a Penny Candle

    Maeve Binchy never fails to write good novel and excels with this one. We follow the lives of two girls living in two very different circumstances through WW2 and the post war years. It is brim full of detail around life, love and tragedy with a gripping conclusion.

    Light a Penny Candle takes the reader back to an era when times were very uncertain in London ; and family safety a definite unknown . When children had to be sent into exile for their own safety - sometimes with people they did not know . Binchy manages to pull the reader into that time , and we are swept along , between London and Ireland , with Elizabeth White . It is a wonderful depiction of the different cross section of life and how that affects young Elizabeth's development into the young woman she becomes .

    Light a penny candle by Mauve Binchy

    An interesting story, I enjoyed the various characters throughout. I was kept interested in some of the complicated people portrayed, and the interwoven relationships. A well written tale of two girls brought together by war, and the loving lasting friendship of Elizabeth with Aisling's family.
