One of Binchy's best, I even thought it might end up differently for once! She just gets into her characters and I love that.

This is not the type of book I would normally read, but I really enjoyed listening to this audio version. The story was quite good, which pleasantly surprised me. The thing I loved best was the performance by Fionnula Flanagan. She was spectacular. I highly recommend audio books performed by her. I have listened to a few other performers that made me cringe or got on my nerves, so it's good to know there are good ones out there.

I always like to read new authors' books so when I kept seeing Maeve Binchy's name and the praise attached so often to her books I decided to try one. The Glass Lake sounded promising with its mystery of a mother disappearing one night. She left a letter on her husband's pillow but Kit, their daughter, took the letter and destroyed it.

I couldn't get into this book. I thought the writing itself was fine, better than most of the authors on the bestseller lists. But the plot seemed to meander too much for me and I have no patience for meanderings unless the characters are so interesting to make me keep trying. Here the main characters are two young school friends, and their lives as interesting are limited to me.

Maeve Binchy never fails. This is another great example of her work. I couldn't wait to turn the page and follow the lives of her many characters. The ending was sad but understandable. You will definatly enjoy this read.
