  1. It's funny because I don't see many people enjoying Maeve Binchy, and actually when I've mentioned her before to friends they had never heard of the author. I love her though, really enjoy her books. Hope you enjoy this new one :)

    Have a great week.

    1. Loving it so far! Enjoy your week Sandra. :)
