Started off well, but I didn’t finish it My mother absolutely loved this book which she read many years ago but I have just got around to starting it. Elizabeth, the 10 year old child of a rather loveless marriage is sent to her mother’s old friend in Ireland, who welcomes 10 year old Elizabeth into her own family of 5 children, including 10 year old Aisling, caring for her for the duration of WW2. I really enjoyed this part of the book. Maeve Binchy wrote in detail about her characters’ thoughts, feelings and day to day actions…

Love, loyalty and friendship at its best This is the umpteenth time I have read this book but the first time on my kindle – because i shall read it again many times. I love all Maeve Binchy’s books and read them again and again. Her stories revolve around and are usually set in Ireland and they are great family or people dramas with great believable characters and you never want the books to end. If you want a good absorbing read try this or any of her books. She has left a great legacy of books.
