Evening Class, Paperback Book
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


A group of people, all looking for something more in their lives, and all they have in common is their Italian evening class...The Italian evening class at Mountainview School is like hundreds of others starting up all over the city.

But this class has its own special quality - as the focus for the varied hopes and dreams of teacher and pupils alike. Aidan Dunne needs his new evening class project to succeed almost as much as his pupils do.

They too are looking for something more: Bill to find a way to keep spendthrift Lizzie at his side, and Fran to make sure that young Kathy finds her way out from behind the kitchen sink.

The key to their success lies with the Signora. Her passion has drawn her from Ireland to Italy and back home again with a burning desire to share her love of all things Italian - and a secret hidden in her heart...

Review by

What ages would I recommend it too? – Sixteen and up. <br/><br/>Length? – Several day’s read.<br/><br/>Characters? – Memorable, several characters.<br/><br/>Setting? – Ireland, 1980's.<br/><br/>Written approximately? – 1996.<br/><br/>Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more.<br/><br/>Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? No.<br/><br/>Short storyline: Each storyline begins on it's own, and comes together flawlessly at the end.<br/><br/>Notes for the reader: This story covers each character's viewpoint separately. At times, it can get confusing as she flies to a characters beginnings, and then brings them up to the present, and slips into the future.
