A Few Of The Girls

Author:

Maeve Binchy

Synopsis:

A FEW OF THE GIRLS is a glorious collection of Maeve Binchy's best stories. They're full of the warmth, charm and humour that has always been an essential part of her writing. Maeve's novels not only tell wonderful stories, they also give an insight in to how Ireland has changed over the decades, but how people remain the same: they still fall in love, sometimes unsuitably; they still have hopes and dreams; they have deep, long-standing friendships, and some that fall apart. Maeve's work has included wonderfully nostalgic pieces and also sharp, often witty writing which is insightful and topical.

Author:

Katarina Bivald/Alice Menzies

Sara has never been outside Sweden - except in the (many) books she reads. When her elderly pen-friend Amy invites her to come and visit her in Broken Wheel, Iowa, Sara decides it's time. But when she arrives, there's a twist waiting for her - Amy has died. Finding herself utterly alone in a dead woman's house in the middle of nowhere was not the holiday Sara had in mind. But then she discovers that here in this town are all the people she's come to know through Amy's letters: poor George, fierce Grace, buttoned-up Caroline, and Amy's guarded nephew Tom. Sara quickly realises that Broken Wheel is in desperate need of some adventure, a dose of self-help, and perhaps a little romance too. In short, this is a town in need of a bookshop...
