Random House, Inc.
It began with Benny Hogan and Eve Malone, growing up, inseparable, in the village of Knockglen. Benny—the only child, yearning to break free from her adoring parents...Eve—the orphaned offspring of a convent handyman and a rebellious blueblood, abandoned by her mother's wealthy family to be raised by nuns. Eve and Benny—they knew the sins and secrets behind every villager's lace curtains...except their own.

It widened at Dublin, at the university where Benny and Eve met beautiful Nan Mahlon and Jack Foley, a doctor's handsome son. But heartbreak and betrayal would bring the worlds of Knockglen and Dublin into explosive collision. Long-hidden lies would emerge to test the meaning of love and the strength of ties held within the fragile gold bands of a...Circle Of Friends.

Maeve Binchy is my go-to author for gentle reads.She writes about the dramas of everyday life. I found myself rooting for the main characters, who are all so different. There is Benny, the much-doted-upon only child; Eve, the orphan child who grew up in a convent; and Nan, who was raised to believe she deserved and could get a better life than she grew up in. I also love getting a glimpse of life in Ireland.

A great book, I saw the movie and was inspired to read the book and I wasn't disappointed. I'm looking forward to reading her other books.
