Overview

The Return Journey by Maeve Binchy

The Return Journey—a spellbinding trip into the human heart...

In these powerful, poignant tales, the New York Times bestselling author of Evening Class and Tara Road once again reveals her unrivaled understanding of matters of the heart. Here are sons and lovers, daughters and strangers, husbands and wives in their infinite variety—powerfully compelling stories of love and loss, revelation and reconciliation.

A secretary's silent passion for her boss meets the acid test on a business trip—.An insecure wife clings to the illusion of order, only to discover chaos at the hands of a house sitter who opens the wrong doors—. A pair of star-crossed travelers take each other's bags, and then learn that when you unlock a stranger's suitcase, you enter a stranger's life.— In their company are many more journeys of hope and discovery—unforgettable slices of life from the incomparable Maeve Binchy.

Mindless fun, and I mean that in a good way. It's a very pleasent book to read during the summer. My favorite story in the book is 'Ms. Vogal's Vacation'. Very lighthearted with a great ending. Enjoyed reading this book a lot.

There iis no storyline. Continuous introduction to new characters but no plots. I usually like her books but not this one.
