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

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.
