Book Description

9 April 2009 BBC Audio
This work features four Maeve Binchy short stories, exclusively written for BBC Radio 4. Maeve Binchy is one of Britain's most popular storytellers, and these four tales demonstrate the warmth and compassion that have made her many novels bestsellers. In "Homecoming", read by Sean Campion, the Brennans run Quentin's restaurant in Dublin for the owner, who lives abroad. But what will happen when he suddenly pays a visit? "Telling Stories", read by Joanna Myers, sees Irene's fiance turning up the night before the wedding with a face as white as the dress that is to be worn the next day. Then trouble starts...In "Needy", read by Patricia Hodge, Heather is painfully aware that Valentine's Day declarations of love should be viewed with suspicion, even if the sender is the one she loves.And in "The Interview", read by Kate Binchy, Bessie is deaf and needs a place in a special school. But will she pass the interview? Finely crafted and full of wit and charm, these are stories that no fan of Maeve Binchy will want to be without.

5.0 out of 5 stars Audio books 28 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this as a present for someone who finds it hard to read a book due to sight problems. When the audio book arrived, I thought I would listen to it, to make sure my friend would like it.
I really enjoyed it,sometimes it's nice to be able to sit back and listen to someone else reading a book, I found it very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. My friend also loved it.

Will be buying more of these audio books, they are very good value, and really entertaining, and you can always listen more than once!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice 19 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A nice relaxing read - typical Binchy. I feel I really know the characters by the end of each story. They link nicely to other books from her collection too. I particularly liked that.

product arrived on time and was pristine etc... The stories though are a little short and, well pointless. 4 short stories with no begginning middle or end, just a diatribe of events to fictional individuals. The only real question is Why?

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a great big Maeve Binchy fan 12 July 2013
By Janette
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I read a lot, have an MA in history, and yet MB is one of my favourite authors. There's just something about her that I can relate to - frustration, love, reality. This was the first audio MB I have purchased and it definitely won;t be the last.
