Maeve Binchy, Dead at 72

In MemoriumMaeve Binchy was 72. He was the novelist best known for her novels Circle of Friends and Light a Penny Candle.

My Irish grandmother ate Maeve Binchy books for breakfast. Every time I'd visit we'd end up at the Bradford library where she'd pick up a Binchy book or two or three. It didn't matter if she had already read the book a dozen times, she loved the Irishness of Binchy's novels.

Grandma would be upset to hear this. She was a big fan of Maeve Binchy.
I have a signed autograph from Maeve as one of my friends knew her well. When our book club read one of her books she signed an autograph and gave it to Mary for all of the book club members.

How did I miss this? I think I have read every Maeve Binchy book there is. May she RIP.
