  • Binchy at her usual best Jul 1, 2010
    by Princessmoonbeam

    Maeve Binchy knows how to weave a story around several characters, drawing them all into the story. At first they seem to be ordinary people, but after a while you realize they're not just ordinary, they have something special to offer to the story. I truly enoy all of her books.

    The 3 stars (average rating) is only because I had difficulty in getting into the book, and that probably due to the Statue(Shrine)??? in the woods and/or that each chapter was dealing with a character and their life individually. This sounds trite.Truthfully, I gave up 2 or 3 times and have yet to go back to it. When I get it back, I will try again.

  • Quick, Easy Reading! Apr 20, 2007
    by Ksnonna

    Only Maeve can write about a single event from two such different viewpoints! Each account is a story in and of itself, but relates to an event of which other characters relate their own account. It's a fast moving, fun book to read. And Maeve fans, we'd better enjoy each one as we have no idea how many more books she will offer!

    Not Binchy's best book, but still lots of her insights into people. She does a nice job of intertwining the lives of people in two small Irish towns. Good characterization. Nice light summer reading.
