This week’s letter:  Author – First or Last Name = “B”

I found this book from one of my favorite “cozy” authors, Maeve BinchyWhitethorn Woods has been on my TBR stacks for a long, long time, so today, by bringing it out to spotlight here, it has been “promoted” to one of my office stacks.  Which means I’ll be reading it sooner rather than later.

On Amazon, I found this description:

Nestled outside the once sleepy Irish village of Rossmore in a copse known as Whitethorn Woods is the shrine of St. Ann’s Well, which attracts so many of the faithful and hopeful that the little town overflows with visitors. This prompts a controversial proposal to construct a bypass highway that would divert traffic, ironically, right through the Woods, thus destroying the source of the town’s popularity. Worried that the shrine’s days are numbered, villagers flock to the Well, where they plead for everything from the restoration of a faltering love affair to the recognition of an ancestor’s legacy. Foregoing her trademark plot-driven narrative for a tale in which the outcome is predictable (will the shrine be saved? duh!), Binchy instead focuses her prodigious talent on a robust assemblage of characters embroiled in romantic and domestic crises. Inventively and intricately weaving a series of linked vignettes, Binchy astounds with the versatility of the supplicants’ voices, from the diabolical machinations of a mother whose daughter has committed murder to the sad serenity of another whose child was kidnapped decades earlier. Binchy is at her best in this tender yet potent tale of a traditional land and people threatened and challenged by the forces of change. Carol Haggas

    1. I’ve had this book on my TBR piles for awhile…that’s how long it’s been since I read one of her books. I read another one of hers earlier. I always look at the chunkster size and think…wait, I’ll read these smaller ones first! Thanks for stopping by, Nise.
