Maeve Binchy, Dead at 72

In Memorium

Maeve 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.
