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!

This is a collection of short stories in which Maeve Binchy introduces us to sons, brothers, fathers, mothers, sisters and lovers. She looks at the relationships and the affect of love on her characters. I have to say that although I usually love Maeve Binchy as an author and am definitely willing to give anything she has written a fighting chance to take me away; I found this particular book lacking in parts.

I had read this book before several years ago and of course had forgotten what it was like. I will definitely still read Maeve Binchy again but, in my opinion, this was a weak book. I give it a C!

Maeve Binchy has to be my favorite author! I've read almost all of her books! But this one is a bunch of short stories and they all left me wanting to know more about each character. No closure!
