did not like it

This book killed my unqualified love of Binchy books.

Stopped reading at page 37, the story was going the way of Circle of Friends. Ella is the 'good' one because she has only slept with a few men by her early 20's and she begins a major romance with a married man. Her parents have a disfunctional relationship with her and each other and offer no moral guidance. Her best friend constantly has one night stands.

Becoming a nun referenced as the worst thing that could happen to a woman (no sex). This book doesn't share the same reality I do. I'm not interested in investing my time in immoral filth, especially when it is poising as a charming, innocent Binchy novel.
