Reviews

Binchy's best-selling tales of provincial Irish life appeal to fans of popular and serious fiction alike. In her latest effort, family secrets threaten to consume a young woman.

Irish novelist Binchy's latest saga of family loyalties and secrets spent 12 weeks on PW's bestseller list. (Apr.)

YA‘With the popularity of the film version of Binchy's Circle of Friends, this story, which traces the developments in the lives of two young friends in a small Irish town in the '50s, is likely to have wide appeal. The heroine, Kit, is shown to be at odds with her best friend, Clio, from the first scene. The differences in their values and emotions persist and separate them as the years pass. The life of Kit's beautiful mother unfolds in a concurrent plot line. Helen is generally believed to have died in a tragic drowning. She has, however, gone off with a lover. The story of her business successes and romantic complexities parallels her daughter's years of maturing, providing Kit and readers with ironic insights as she and a very few of the townspeople become aware of the woman's new life. A big, easy, comfortable read.‘Frances Reiher, King's Park Library, Burke, VA
