A Few of the Girls
I have been a reader of Maeve Binchy’s books most of my life. She passed away in 2012, and it was like losing a good friend.
I have been pleasantly surprised by the number of books that have been
released since her death: A Week in Winter (2013), Chestnut Street (2014)
and in March 2016 a collection of short stories titled A Few of the Girls. If you are looking for a short story to treasure before you drift off to sleep A Few of the Girls is the perfect book for you. This is the book I am currently savoring.
Generally I am not a big fan of short stories but Maeve’s are always a delight. Her stories tell of small town life in Ireland. She writes of love and loss, heartache and joy. She tells stories of family life, the same issues we all face, but Maeve makes them heartwarming!
I love her style of writing and the feeling her stories give me. They are like comfort food at the end of a long day. If you find that Maeve Binchy touches your heart as she has touched mine, you will be delighted by the number of books she has written over the course of her lifetime. Each one will leave you feeling deeply satisfied. Enjoy!
