Light a Penny Candle is one of the best books I have ever read. It sucks you in over and over. I have reread it countless times. The story starts out in the middle of WWII. Elizabeth is sent from London to the Irish countryside. She lives with a distant friend of her mother's and becomes best friends with that family's dtr, Aisling. This is isn't a war story! It's the story of two girls who grow up and learn the consequences of choices, hard decisions, and making ones life their own. Maeve Binchy is a master at character development. She writes highly nuanced characers. You learn why each character does what it does, but not in a psychobabble way. I finished this book with a feeling of completion yet still wanting more! Binchy does that to you. I highly recommend this book for someone who wants an engrossing read!
