The beginning of the book was slo This is probably the 3rd or 4th book by Maeve Binchy that I’ve read Overall, I found this a little slow and disjointed to get into but by halfway it had started to coalesce and I actually enjoyed it so much I read the second half of the book in a much quicker time three days, compared to 2 weeks!

It was really cheesy. I love seeing the characters reappear, not as primary, but as secondary in other stories. Neil’s mother Hannah, against the marriage of her son to the cleaner’s daughter, makes life hard for Cathy, while Marcella’s ambitions come between her and Tom.
