I just got around to reading this last night. It's a VERY slim novella....and I was extremely disappointedl It took me half an hour to read what was a very childlike prose. It was only after I did a bit more checking in the book and online that I found out it's part of a series of books for an adult literacy program. This fact isn't mentioned anywhere in the Amazon description.

As someone who was responsible for an adult literacy program in the past, it is well written for that purpose.

Having never run across this short book in my travels before, I was delighted to finally notice it shortly after Ms Binchy passed away.

If you love her books and short stories, you will love this little book which is typical of her warm style.

Alas you can read this book in less than two hours--at 90 or so pages it's over all too soon! Story was worthy of an entire long novel but ah well---charming story that ends well. I do highly recommend it.

The usual, excellent fare from Binchy. Sympathetic characters, insightful -- um -- insights into the human condition, and agreeable plot. As with most of Binchy's works, the good characters exert a subtle, beneficial influence on others. Uplifting stuff.
