This Year Will be Different By Maeve Binchy (Book Review)
This Year Will be Different is a collection of 15 short stories by Maeve Binchy. It was previously published abroad as The Return Journey. The paperback’s ISBN is 9780752876283 and it is published by Orion in Ireland and the UK. Its theme is Christmas with a twist and it discusses feelings that cannot be hidden. In a warm and sympathic way Maeve introduces power struggles, affairs and unwelcome discoveries. Everything from cranky grandparents, exhausted mums, bold teenagers and mistresses are characters in the stories. Its message is hope and new beginnings. I prefer her long novels but it is great as a bed time read to dip in to and read a very short story each night. Reviewed by Annette Dunlea author of Always and Forever and The Honey Trap.
