Summary

Baby Frankie is born into an unusual family. Her mother is desperate to find someone to take care of her child, and she doesn’t have much time. Noel doesn’t seem to be the most promising of fathers, but despite everything he could well be Frankie’s best hope. As for Lisa, she is prepared to give up everything for the man she loves; surely he’s going to love her back. And Moira is having none of it. She knows what’s right and has the power to change the course of Frankie’s life...but Moira is hiding secrets of her own.
Minding Frankie is a story about unconventional families, relationships which aren't quite what they seem, and the child at the heart of everyone's lives....

An OK Binchy

This review is spoiler free!
This book has a lot of the features that Binchy fans love: an extended group with "make your own family" types of bonds, characters that make you want to scream but eventually get their due, and lots of fun and drama on the way. It also has one of my favourite features of her latest books: a chance to catch up with many of your favourite Binchy characters from previous books! However, the last chapter is grossly miscalculated. It introduces a wrinkle that is treated far too briefly with a facile resolution that did not sit well with me and kind of wrecked the whole book. If you are a Binchy fan, you won't want to skip this because you can catch up with all those previous characters, but try it and see if you agree with me about the last chapter.

Minding Frankie

How could you not love the wonderful, wholesome, emotional, real joys that Mauve Binchy continues to share with her audience. Beautifully read by Kate who honoured the words by bringing us all together to share another lovely visit with these "family members" of the Mauve Binchy world she graciously shares with us all. So enjoyable - please make yourself "feel good". Make sure this book is on your list - become part of the love and inspiration her characters share and impart on its listeners.
