Maeve Binchy always tells a good story and this one is no exception. Copper Beech tells the story of a small town in Ireland, Shancarrig. The same span of twenty years or so is covered from the viewpoints of nine different residents of the town. It's fascinating to see how all of their lives are intertwined. The copper beech of the title is a huge tree that stands by the schoolhouse, and it has years worth of history carved into it as it has become tradition for each member of each graduating class to carve something. The residents of Shancarrig and the stories told with the help of the beech tree carvings will find their way into your heart.
