Mave Binchy's Irish Stories - A Delightful Read

Are you looking for an engaging summer novel to captivate you while lying on the beach? Or are you ready to curl up by the fire for a cozy winter's evening read?

Even if you are just immersed in day-to-day life and seek the refuge of transporting yourself into another world you must pick up one of Mave Binchy's series of Irish novels.

Mave Binchy is the author of 'Circle of Friends'. The book was made into a movie starring Minnie Driver and the author has won many of fans by involving them with her tales of Irish citizens and the twists and turns that create fascinating stories out of ordinary lives.

If you relish the emotion and intricacies of relationships and the madness of triumph and tragedies that inflict themselves on everyday lives, you will find yourself captivated as she spins a story of average people of whom you truly feel could be your best friend or neighbor.

Her books have been called "Mesmerizing", "Remarkably moving" and "Compulsively readable" by reviewers.

In many of her novels, 'The Glass Lake', 'Evening Class', 'Copper Beech' and others, the stories of the lives of the characters emerge and become intertwined. As you become intimately involved with one character you will meet the other individuals in his or her life - at the restaurant, down the street and even during a foreign escapade.

As you travel their lives you will feel you have not only met this individual but understand their longings and place in this world based on your intimate knowledge of their past and their experiences.

When you read another novel, you will again meet these old friends as they are known to the current character. You will have the familiar feeling that you've known this town and it's occupants for years.

In fact, you may well wonder if Mave Binchy knows them herself. The stories have such a ring of truth and the mixing of individuals so well thought out you believe she could indefinitely create this town of people with history, lives and futures as if they existed in the real world.

You will not come to the end of a novel with the feeling of regret as we so often do when enjoying an engaging tale because you will actually visit these characters again, at another time in their life. Just as moving away from your hometown can be painful, it is wonderfully reassuring to hear news or make a visit and see how life is progressing for these dear ones.

It is an understatement to say that Mave Binchy weaves a fine yarn - the truth is that when you close the book you will sense you've had a long talk over a cup of coffee with an acquaintance and after listening to their life story come away with a new friend.

You will become enraptured with the details of their lives and surprised or moved by the trials and tribulations they've encountered.

They will in fact become a piece of your memory in much the same way as friends from your youth and from far away have become a small piece of you.

You are a life Saver!!

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that habit with coming here.

In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
