Another great book by one of my favourite authors.
This is definitely one of Maeve Binchy's best novels. An evening class for adults, they're learning Italian and learning about each other. And then the class decides to travel to Italy as a group. Some of the characters will confront their pasts, others will discover their future, and some will come to terms with their present.Highly recommended.
My favorite Maeve Binchy book. I read this in 3 days; I couldn't get the characters out of my head and I was captivated by the way she wove each life into the next.Reading it again, I changed to 4 stars. Still really liked it, but perhaps because it was a re-read, it was more predictable, even though it had been more than 10 years since I first read it.
Fairly typical Maeve Binchy fare, this, although the structure is a little looser than some of her other novels. Each chapter focuses on a different character although they intermingle a little. I thought the story of the teacher and her tragic love affair in Italy was the best, though fans of Maeve Binchy will find much to enjoy in the well rounded characters and their individual stories throughout this book.
