No-one rivals Maeve Binchy for stories of warmth, kindness, love, loss – and life not always turning out as expected...

MAEVE BINCHY Chestnut Street

A delightful collection of linked stories from No. 1 bestselling author Maeve Binchy – simply the best. Just round the corner from St Jarlath’s Crescent (featured in Minding Frankie) is Chestnut Street. Here, the lives of the residents are revealed in Maeve Binchy’s wonderful collection of stories: Bucket Maquire, the window cleaner, who must do more than he bargained for to protect his son. Nessa Byrne, whose aunt comes to visit from America and turns the house – and Nessa’s world – upside down. Lilian, the girl with a big heart, and the fiancé not everyone approves of. And Melly, whose gossip about the neighbours leads to trouble. Maeve Binchy was born in County Dublin. After a spell as a teacher she joined the Irish TImes. Her first novel, Light a Penny Candle, was published in 1982 and she went on to write over 20 books, all of them bestsellers. She was married to the writer and broadcaster Gordon Snell for 35 years, and died in 2012.
