This Year It Will Be Different by Maeve Binchy – Book Review #44
I don’t know if I’ve read any other Maeve Binchy books but after reading This Year It Will Be Different, I’ll be on the lookout for more of her books 🙂
This Year It Will Be Different – Maeve Binchy
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
From the New York Times bestselling author of Circle of Friends, The Glass Lake, and Evening Class comes a stunning collection of fifteen Christmas stories filled with Maeve Binchy’s trademark wit, charm, and sheer storytelling genius. In A Typical Irish Christmas, a grieving widower heads for a holiday in Ireland and finds an unexpected destination not just for himself, but for a father and daughter in crisis. . . . In Pulling Together, a teacher not yet out of her twenties sees her affair with a married man at a turning point as Christmas Eve approaches. . . . And in the title story, This Year It Will Be Different, a woman with a complacent husband and grown children enters a season that will forever alter her life, and theirs. . .
I loved this nice, easy to read book. I was surprised at how very short the first short story was! I soon got used to it, though, and found myself actually enjoying reading just a snippet of people’s lives rather than an in-depth tale.
