Binchy at her finest!

The only reason it did not get 5 stars was for length of book. This was a fun, light read, typical Maeve storytelling!! I really wish she would make this a full length novel!! I love her style and have been a big fan for 20+ years and this is a great example of her wor...

    Not my favorite

    Worth 99 cents, but not great.

    Very short story!

    It's a nice little story, but very short. I will read anything Maeve Binchy writes, she could make a grocery list seem interesting. I am left wondering if this particular poetry festival is in fact an real-life annual event in Ireland, or a fictious festival? The detail in which it is described reads like a travel brochure. If it IS a real festival, then the word is out and they can expect full occupancy next summer from Binchy fans.

    Good read

    A nice quick read. Wish it some detail at the beginning be taken out for more detail in the end.
