BOOK NEWS: Heart and Soul
Maeve Binchy was the subject of our Thursday Trailblazer last week and coincidently I discovered she has a new book coming out this October. After announcing in 2000 that she was no longer going to write novels she has subsequently written Quentins, Night of Rain and Stars and Whitethorn Woods. I wasn't that keen on the latter but I'm hoping that was a blip and Heart and Soul will see a return to Maeve's best.
It is about Clara Casey and her daughters, Adi and Linda, a Polish woman called Anya, a man called Declan and Father Brian Flynn. I love it when she has a group of people come together like this, it is Maeve's specialty. Oh, and by the way, don't be put off by the old fashioned book cover.
