This book was really enjoyable and is a quick read. Maeve Binchy has this incredible way of writing believable love stories. Whether it's love lost, new love, or love between family members she really pulls at your heartstrings. In "The Return Journey" she gives the reader vignettes of a whole slew of different situations. I wanted to keep reading once the short stories were done because I grew to care so much about the characters in just a few pages!
In these powerful, poignant tales, the best-selling author once again reveals her unrivaled understanding of matters of the heart. her are sons and lovers, daughters and strangers, husbands and wives in their infinite variety- powerfully compelling stories of love and loss, revelation and reconciliation.
I don't usually enjoy short stories very much, but I found this collection hard to put down.
