A book of loosely connected stories...all of the people have some connection to a small town in Ireland called Rossmoor and a well in the woods that is dedicated to Saint Ann, where people go to pray for intercessions. A fun, escapist read, although I would not count it among her best.

I love Maeve Binchy and would read anything she writes. This book was very tedious to read and not my favorite of her books.

This is an interesting book because it really is a series of short stories about people that are connected to the town of Rossmore and St. Ann's Well. If you read this with this in mind you can really enjoy it. Some of the people are inter-connected and you see their side of their life.

I listened to the audio CD version of Whitehorn Woods. Great narration of a very good story. I really enjoyed the story and the narrator made the story come alive. I wasn't disappointed in this audiobook.

I didn't care for this one as much as her others. More short stories than a novel. Too many ends left undone.
