I love Binchy but I think she rushed through this one. It just isn't engrossing like most of her novels.

I usually enjoy Maeve Binchy's writing. This book was no exception. Her quiet study of the characters built a beautiful story of joy and sadness, tragedy and survival, and anger and forgiveness. Ms. Binchy's description of the Greek Isles gives wonderful imagery on which to build dreams for one's own exploration.

This is a beautiful character driven story. The narration was wonderfully done by Terry Donnelly.

Another great novel from Maeve Binchy! This novel is a story of sudden endings and new beginnings, of friendships forged in the face of tragedy, and of the nights of rain and stars that fall and shine over a beautiful island in a sparkling sea. In a small Greek island village, a group of travelers from around the world and the local residents they encounter are brought together in unexpected ways when sudden tragedy strikes.

The setting is a small village in Greece where four strangers meet and share a village tragedy. Each person has a personal reason for being in this remote village and find answers in surprising ways. I loved it.

As usual, I loved this book. Maeve Binchy never fails to capture me with her characters and writing style. This one I finished in 2 days. That is saying something with 2 kids.

Takes place in a Greek village. A handful of tourists are thrown together by a tradegy that they observe. They become friends - and sometimes more - as they all reexamine their lives. Good escapist book - has a wish-I-was-there factor.
