Evacuated from Blitz-battered London, shy and genteel Elizabeth White is sent to stay with the boisterous O’Connors in Kilgarret, Ireland. It is the beginning of an unshakable bond between Elizabeth and Aisling O’Connor, a friendship that will endure through twenty turbulent years of change and chaos, joy and sorrow, soaring dreams and searing betrayals.

Writing with warmth, wit, and great compassion, Maeve Binchy tells a magnificent story of the lives and loves of two women, bound together in a friendship that nothing could tear asunder—not even the man who threatened to come between them forever.

    " Light a Penny Candle is one of Maeve Binchy's earlier published novels, I liked this book, but there is an improvement on her story-telling. This story is set in the time of WWII when British parents used to send their children away from the cities and bombs. In the case of Elizabeth, she was sent to Ireland where she meets her life-long friend Aisling. Light a Penny Candle brings one of Binchy's main themes throughout her books: strong friendships. And as always her stories are heart-warming and a pleasure to read. "

    " Never finished this one...just couldn't really get into it. I've heard good things about Maeve Binchy's books, but wasn't too impressed with this one. "

    " I loved this book until the last few chapters, when the main characters were portrayed completely out of character for them, and the ending seemed rushed and unnatural. This was Ms. Binchy's first novel, and this perhaps accounts for it. I have read several of her books, and enjoy them immensely. "

    " This is a book I read many years ago. I do not remember the story, but, I remember I liked it enough to go on and read more of Maeve Binchy. "
