Maeve Binchy's last book
« on: May 28, 2013, 07:25:24 PM »
I just finished reading her last book, A Week in Winter, and am so sad that there will be no more.   :(

You must discover the next new writer who will take up the Maeve Binchy banner.  Surely there will be one come along, or there will be a terrible hole in the world of books.  Keep your eyes open!

I hope so, Listy! There's just something comforting about her books.

“I don't have ugly ducklings turning into swans in my stories. I have ugly ducklings turning into confident ducks.”  - Maeve Binchy

What a great quote!  If you Google Maeve Binchy similar authors (or writers) you will find lists of writers to try.  I was going to recommend some, but then I remembered how much you read and thought better of it.  Good luck - I hope you find something wonderful!

I love that quote!
And I DO appreciate book recommendations.  I never would've read The Weird Sisters if not recommended here.  :)  I love seeing what everyone else is reading.
But I'll try to remember to do a search as you suggested.
