I have read a few Maeve Binchy novels and like her style of writing and so got this book. Part of the Open Doors series, a nice little story about an older lady who befriends a builder working next door and how she stands up to her family and makes them realise they are taking her for granted. Only gave this four stars as like another reviewer said it really is a very short story which I read in about 30 mins. Still, if you are new to Maeve Binchy this might be a way to be introduced to her work. Another plus is that some of the proceeds go to a charity of the authors choice.
