Description
Published after her death in 2012, these 38 linked tales by Maeve Binchy were written over several decades, and prove why she was one of Ireland's most beloved storytellers. On Chestnut Street in Dublin, we find Bucket Maguire, the window cleaner, who must do more than he bargained for to protect his son; Nessa Byrne, whose aunt comes to visit from America for six weeks every summer and turns Nessa's world upside down; Lilian, the generous girl with a big heart, and a fiancé not everyone approves of; and Melly, whose gossip about the neighbors leads to trouble in the form of fortune teller "Madame Magic."

"The author gives us one last extraordinary look at ordinary people as they struggle with family relationships, romances gone awry, and the possibility for a better future.... Binchy's thoughtful and loving touch ... will be sorely missed."—Publishers Weekly

"Thanks to Binchy's characteristic compassion, we find ourselves sympathizing with her underdogs, welcoming the punishments visited on her scoundrels, and wishing for justice for those long-suffering characters who keep trying to do the right thing without any hope of recompense.... An unexpected treat."—Irish Mail on Sunday
