Summary
"Maeve Binchy's novels sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, and when she died on July 30th 2012, she did so as Ireland's best-loved writer. With bestselling books such as Light a Penny Candle, Circle of Friends, Tara Road, Evening Class, and A Week in Winter, which was published four months after her death, no one else told stories like Maeve Binchy. Humane, down-to-earth, and funny, her novels captured imaginations on both sides of the Atlantic in a way that most authors only dream of." --
Summary
A first posthumous biography of the author of such best-selling works as Circle of Friends and Tara Road chronicles her path to becoming a writer as revealed through first-person anecdotes and interviews as well as the reminiscences of her closest friends
