Avid readers’ thoughts.
Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy . What a wonderful surprise! I found another Maeve Binchy, written in her wonderful unique style. Whatever the problem there is always an answer, a good mix of characters from many backgrounds & yet they all work together for good. Even some old favourites appear, places & people you just feel at home in Dublin.
With the insight, humour, and compassion we have come to expect from her, Maeve Binchy tells a story of family, friends, patients, and staff who are part of a heart clinic in a community caught between the old and the new Ireland.
Dr. Clara Casey has been offered the thankless job of establishing the underfunded clinic and agrees to take it on for a year. She has plenty on her plate already—two difficult adult daughters and the unwanted attentions of her ex-husband—but she assembles a wonderfully diverse staff devoted to helping their demanding, often difficult patients.
Before long the clinic is established as an essential part of the community, and Clara must decide whether or not to leave a place where lives are saved, courage is rewarded, and humor and optimism triumph over greed and self-pity.
Heart and Soul is Maeve Binchy at her storytelling best.
