This is such a sweet book of aloneness, family dynamics, friendships and strong neighborhood love and guidance. I recommend this read highly for anyone who loves interesting characters and a good story to the very end!

Maeve Binchy writes about people in such a warm and inviting way that I at least am transported into their world, caught up in their lives and feel as if I have been minding Frankie this last year too!

While the book stands alone, it draws on the characters of her previous novels and leave enough threads out there for a dozen more books to branch off this tree she planted and nurtures so well.

This is one not to be missed. If you don't love it I'll be shocked. If you want to visit a real community of people who care about one another and work to create a world outside their own concerns, you will enjoy this.

Interesting turn of events for a young pregnant woman who names an alcoholic, uneducated, poor-job prospects individual who accepts her announcement without question. How his neighborhood steps up,helping and covering for him until he learns his way makes for an interesting read. I was left with many unanswered questions, but that is why we have book club discussions.

Typical, pleasant Maeve Binchy book. She is not my favorite author, but she is dependable for a light, enjoyable read. I do sometimes feel like I need a scorecard to keep track of all her many characters...
