Novel: Wales bed-and-breakfast em Name that Book (Setembro 2016)


Every Friday, a small group of people from Dublin board a lilac painted mini-bus for the trip to the small town of Rathdoon. Over the course of the novella, we learn their stories and their secrets. My copy of the book included the four stories in Dublin/4, which was just as the title suggests, four short stories set in Dublin.

The Copper Beech is Binchy at her best. The small schoolhouse and the copper beech in its yard form the center of the Irish village of Shancarrig. Characters are the focus of each chapter but Binchy uses these individual portraits to also tell a tale.
