I really liked this, unusual as I don't usually enjoy short story collections as much as full length novels. Maeve Binchy has the knack of breathing life into a character from an early stage, so you care about what happens to them. There is always the problem of having to say goodbye to them earlier than you would in a novel, but then the next one proves just as fascinating.If I have a criticism, it's regarding the later stories - slightly longer than the earlier ones, and occasionally a bit obscure. But generally a really good read, particularly if you like Maeve Binchy and you like short stories, but worth a go even if you don't
Typical, well written Maeve Binchy..... I just wish she had developed some of the stories into longer books. But I recommend this book to all Binchy fans.
Lovely, satisfying stories that leave you wanting more. Perfect beach read.
Effective collection of short stories about various people (mostly women) who live in London (or visit it), with vignettes of often sad or surprising lives. Some stories have a good twist at the end, others not total;ly successful like that. Connection with the Underground tenuous and could easily have been dropped. I enjoyed it.
