Another Maeve masterpiece! Once again, she has managed to wind the stories of very diverse people into a cohesive yarn. If you've read other Binchy novels, you may have noticed that, in the last several novels she wrote, she's picked up characters and places from former books. Although in this book, those former characters and places are less a part of the current story, you'll smile as you recognize a few of them. Remember Quentin's in Dublin? It's still doing well! And Holly's Hotel in Wicklow? It's also continued to succeed - perhaps too much. You'll also find Fiona and a couple of her friends,visit St. Jarlath's Crescent, and even Rossmore. Yet you'll spend almost all of your time with this book in west Ireland, where you'll meet several new characters, each of whom has an engaging story to share - and you'll find yourself wishing to hear their next chapters! Like a fine chef, Binchy has treated her readers to a full-course meal, ending her career with a scrumptious dessert. And like all great chefs, she'll send you away with your mouth watering for the next meal - if only she were still here to prepare it!

    Did not like as much

    Did not like this one as much as others by this author. Many, many choppy sentences and slow to get to main plot. The writing was stolid and colorless. Very disappointed.

    I found very little in this book that would cause me to recommend it.  The storyline and plot was very predicable and in my opinion just plain boring and unbelievable.  The characters were all so dysfunctional that I found myself not even feeling sympathetic because they lacked such common sense.  I read the whole book but did not find it entertaining and the book was just not well written.
