I read this book years and years ago. Maeve Binchy was a new author for me, and I was bored with the same-old/same-old cliche romance novels, so I reached for this one. Heartbreaking from the start, this book, to me...illustrated the bravado and turning point for one woman who really had to look beyond a familiar lifestyle to truly FIND herself. I have not since read a Maeve Binchy book due to taking a hiatus from fiction for a few years, but I'm dying to plunge into her other titles.
I have not read books in a while. This one is an easy read but hard to put down once I started. I love the fact that this book tells about the reality and hard truth about life. I giggled and I cried.
I'm giving it a 4 for its impact. I would have wanted a different ending though.
