Publisher Description

A New York Times Bestseller
 
From the author of A Week in Winter and Minding Frankie: a poignant and heartwarming collection of stories centered on the comings and goings of one delightful street in Dublin
 
“Packed with charming takes on people's quirks and foibles, nosy neighbors and friendly ones. Binchy eloquently exposes and explores relationships between parents and children, husbands and wives, longtime and recently acquired friends.”—The Boston Globe
 
Imagined with the humor and understanding that are hallmarks of Maeve Binchy’s storytelling, the world of Chestnut Street captivates us with its joys and sorrows.
 
Maguire, the window cleaner, must do more than he bargained for in order to protect his son. Nessa Byrne’s aunt visits from America every summer, turning Nessa’s house—and world—upside down. Lilian, a generous girl with a big heart, has a fiancé whom no one approves of. Melly’s gossipy ways help Madame Magic, a self-styled fortune-teller, get everyone on the right track. And Dolly, an awkward young girl, discovers more about her perfect mother than she ever wanted to know.

Chestnut Street

Interesting short stories but it was hard to stay with them. First time I actually got bored with my favorite author.

Mary Ward Taylor ,

More, please.

Thanks belongs to Maeve’s husband, her dear Gordon, for seeing that her short stories were published. Her devoted fans, who miss her, long to read anything from her brilliantly creative mind. It was a lovely visit to Chestnut Street.

Too many characters!

By the time you get interested in each character she goes on to the next one leaving you totally unsatisfied with each one. It would have been much better if she had expanded on about half as many! She is a great writer but this book leaves you with too many unfinished stories!
