This book was a collection of mini-stories about the people who live in or near the village of Rossmore, a small Irish town that is debating whether or not to build a road through the legendary Whitethorn Woods. The woods are home to a religious shrine to St. Ann, which would be desstroyed if the road were to go through. The people in each of this vignettes have been affected by this shrine in one way or another, and these stories are their voice as they each tell their personal tale. The author weaves these stories together as we see how each of these people's stories are interrelated, for a surprise ending. This was a good read, classic Maeve Binchy!
