New Maeve Binchy Book!

Maeve Binchy, for those who may not know, is a fabulous novelist. She writes big, complex, satisfying books, mostly set in Ireland. Lately she's been writing contemporary settings, but her first several books took place during the mid-forties-to-mid-sixties. She's also a gripping short story writer. Her first book, Light a Penny Candle is one of my all-time favorite novels.

Anyway, I thought she had stopped writing. I read somewhere that she had decided her last novel really would be her last novel. Apparently I was wrong, there's a new one out, Nights of Rain and Stars and it's been out long enough to be cheap on Amazon.

Happy summer reading!
