The Return Journey

The late snd much mourned Maeve Binchy in classic form. Each story is an elegant little vignette, the characters are so well drawn that you care about the outcome but, at the same time each story is the perfect length. The stories are varied, some happy, some sad, none predictable. The art of the short story is a precise one, it is not the same as writing a full length novel, the author must be sparing in detail but put enough in to engage the reader. Maeve Binchy was one of those clever writers who had the gift of writing to such an extent that she could have written the blurb on a cereal packet and made it interesting. I am happy to say that these stories are Maeve Binchy at her best!
