Some very sad news today - Maeve Binchy has died after a short illness.

I enjoy her books - she will be greatly missed, I'm sure.

I saw that on one of my lists. Just finished one of her anthologies a couple of months ago. She will be missed.

I was so sad to hear this. A wonderful Author and I'm sure a lovely lady. I love her stories. I think I have every single one of her books. May she rest in peace.
