    " It's been a long time since I ready a book my Binchy and I loved this one! I wanted more when it was over! And I loved the subtle references to other paces and characters in previous books! "

    " A selection of 4 short stories originally written for radio by Maeve Binchy. I listened to the audio version and all were well read by notable actors. As usual with her work, Binchy is able to entertain with her compassionate approach to her characters. "
