"Maeve Binchy's novels sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, and when she died on July 30th 2012, she did so as Ireland's best-loved writer. With bestselling books such as Light a Penny Candle, Circle of Friends, Tara Road, Evening Class, and A Week in Winter, which was published four months after her death, no one else told stories like Maeve Binchy. Humane, down-to-earth, and funny, her novels captured imaginations on both sides of the Atlantic in a way that most authors only dream of. More than simply a biography, this extraordinary book visits Maeve Binchy in the land of her birth, which is the environment of her novels, and in the company of the author and her fictional characters sets out to discover the emotional contours which define her as a writer and a person"-- Provided by publisher.

Parts of this book seemed more like reviews of Binchy's books and less about her life. Overall though, I enjoyed learning more about the person behind the wonderful stories I've enjoyed reading over the years.
