a collection of 22 stories... They leave a lasting impression on your mind. Each story is based on a particular area in London -- Notting Hill Gate, Holland Park, King's Cross, etc. -- and the stories, from a compulsive shoplifter to a woman's affair with a married man, are poignant, lucid and memorable
I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. Almost every one of them left me wanting to know the next chapter in that woman's life but were satisfying. Very well written and a good book for lunchtime/breaktime reading when you don't have oodles of time to read.
A series of 22 short love stories filled with humor and warmth.
Maeve Binchy = terrific author

Maeve Binchy is one of my favorite authors. A bit different from some of her other books. Briefly introduces several characters instead of indepth on a few. But still a good book.
A great summer read! Maeve Binchy, as always entertaining - this seemed like a series of short stories, with a cohesive undercurrent. Highly recommended!
As usual Maeve Binchy does a great job with descriptions of characters and
