Just round the corner from St Jarlath's Crescent (featured in MINDING FRANKIE) is Chestnut Street. Here, the lives of the residents are revealed in Maeve Binchy's wonderfully compelling tales:

Bucket Maguire, the window cleaner, who must do more than he bargained for to protect his son. Nessa Byrne, whose aunt comes to visit from America for six weeks every summer and turns the house - and Nessa's world - upside down. Lilian, the generous girl with a big heart, and the fiance not everyone approves of. And Melly, whose gossip about the neighbours leads to trouble in the form of the fortune teller, 'Madame Magic'...

No one rivals Maeve Binchy for stories of warmth, kindness, love, loss - and life not always turning out as expected.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The author gives us one last extraordinary look at ordinary people as they struggle with family relationships, romances gone awry, and the possibility for a better future ... all with Binchy's thoughtful and loving touch that will be sorely missed * Publishers Weekly *
Maeve Binchy's work continues to inspire ... thought-provoking, warm and funny in equal measure. * Woman *
Thanks to Binchy's characteristic compassion, we find ourselves sympathising with her underdogs, welcoming the punishments visited on her scoundrels, and wishing for justice for those long-suffering characters who keep trying to do the right thing without any hope of recompense ... an unexpected treat. * Irish Mail on Sunday *
In Chestnut Street [there is] enough kindness, wisdom and insight into human nature, to remind readers why Maeve Binchy was one of the most beloved writers this country has ever produced. * Irish Times *
Written over the past decades, these heartwarming stories of Dublin life, set around Chestnut Street, are collected together for the first time ... Binchy's last book is one to treasure. * Woman & Home *
Binchy wrote as naturally as she breathed, and this collection has all her trademark humanity and humour * Saga magazine *
