Maeve Binchy R.I.P.

So sad to hear of Maeve Binchy's passing today.
I read a lot of her book's. Some I often re read and never bore of them. I loved the way she portrayed her characters, often I could imagine her smile as I was reading. Her books are like a balm to my soul. Comfort reading in the loveliest imaginable way
I also liked her when I saw her in interviews, esp with Gay Byrne. She just had a lovely way about her.
Condolences to her family and friends
R.I.P. Maeve Binchy

Rest in peace Maeve. I've been reading her books since I was twelve. Have re-read them many times. They are the ultimate comfort read.
In the recent RTE documentary about her life, she came across as a really warm and caring lady. Condolences to her husband Gordon and family.

I remember reading 'Circle of Friends' as a young teenager and mitching from school when the film came to our local cinema in the mid 90s. Happy days :):):)

Maeve will live on through her books.

RIP Maeve Binchy


Edit:

RTE are showing Maeve Binchy: At Home in the World tonight (Tues) on RTE 1 @ 10:05pm.

RIP Maeve- I have so much respect for her as a writer and was pleasantly surprised to see that she volunteered on an Israeli kibbutz back in the 60s- a woman before her time.

As the narrator says, take 5 minutes of your time and enjoy Maeve Binchy doing what she does best
