really liked it
bookshelves: ireland
Read from August 06 to September 01, 2011 — I own a copy

I read several Maeve Binchy books and always liked the fact that I started reading them around the moment that I was also moving to Dublin. All her stories are set in or around Dublin or always have some link, part in the book. Every one of her stories start a bit slow, a lot of introducing the different characters who will play all their own part in the story but after that it normally starts to go faster and get interesting or addicted. The glass lake has been very slow for its first hundred pages, a bit more slow than normally. The story is also longer than the other ones I read.

But then like all her other books, also this one starts to get you into the story,the characters and I again really liked the story. The stories always let you end with a feel good feeling. In this story, I liked Lena, Stevie but especially Kit. And I will try to go and visit the little church at St Stephen's green that was used in the story.
Again her way of describing Dublin was very much like it really is.
