A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy
Ah, Maeve. Opening one of her books transports you to Ireland. You can hear the voices of the characters as if you were there, and feel like you’re part of Irish daily life. You’ll be rooting for the characters (except maybe one) in all their ups and downs at a bed and breakfast operated by the heroine of the tale.
What makes this book extraordinarily poignant is that this is Binchy’s last book. It’s sad to think that her creative writing and entrancing voice have been silenced. Rest easy, Maeve, and thanks for the pleasure you’ve given us.
