Overview

The Copper Beech by Maeve Binchy, Fionnula Flanagan

In the Irish town of Schancarrig, the young people carve their initials-and those of their loves — into the copper beech tree in front of the schoolhouse. But not even Father Gunn, the parish priest, who knows most of what goes on behind Shancarrig's closed doors, or Dr. Jims, the village doctor, who knows all the rest, realizes that not everything in the placid village is what it seems. Unexpected passions and fear are bringing together the lives of so many, such as the sensitive new priest and Miss Ross, the slight, beautiful schoolteacher... Leonora, the privileged daughter of the town's richest family and Foxy Dunne, whose father did time in jail... and Nessa Ryan, whose parents run Ryan's Hotel, and two very different young men. For now the secrets in Shancarrig's shadows are starting to be revealed, from innocent vanities and hidden loves to crimes of the heart... and even to murder.

I was sucked in, entertained, a unwillingly pushed back into reality. I truly lost myself in this story. Better than Tara Road

This book is classic Binchy: heart-warming with characters that you truly care about and want to embrace. The book's format also appealed to me; one chapter per character going into their life in detail. Everyone is intertwined in everyone else's life and each chapter is like solving a bit of mystery about that person. This is a well-written, fast read, perfect for vacations and summer-time!

Once again the author has given us characters that we come to love and care about. I always love it when she gives us a follow up on their lives and we are happy that almost everyone is happy and doing well.

Copper sighed. I will never find Gold & Dusty. They left me. She thought. She started crying as she thought why they could have left her. She fell into a trobled terrible sleep filled with nightmares and sorrow. "Ahh." SHe woke up when in her nightmare a fox had caught Gold & Dusty in its blood stained teeth. It nearly got her but he woke up just in time. Whooo whooo. She heard an owl fly over head. She started whimpering scared that Gold, Dusty and herself would never be reunighted again. She ran into a hollow under a tree. She stared up of the hollow. Glistening eyes shined in the endless darkness. I am stong. I can get though this. She tought over and again. Right before a musky scent driffed over to her. "Yuck." She said. The scent got stronger. Copper backed as far as she could into the hollow. A big red face poked into it. All copper could see was the black nose and red muzzle. Its a fox. Its a fox. She thouggt as the long blac claws reach in. Trying to grab her. Its just like my dream. But this is no dream its real life. Gold , Dusty help me. She thought. PART THREE COMING SOON!
