4 Binchy, Maeve MINDING FRANKIE
Knopf 2011 0307273563 / 9780307273567 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A crisp clean first edition, (as stated) no markings throughout: Reading a Maeve Binchy novel is like settling in for a cozy visit with an o ld friend. In vintage Binchy style, a cast of colorfully eccentric characte rs living in a snug Dublin neighborhood seamlessly weave in and out of each other's lives, united by family, faith, friendship, and community. When a young alcoholic learns he has fathered a child with a dying woman, he must step into the role of father, protector, and provider to his infant daughte r, Frankie, in a matter of weeks. Determined to succeed, though totally unp repared for his new responsibilities, Noel gets an essential assist from hi s visiting American cousin. Exercising her tremendous gifts of organization and insight, Emily cobbles together a neighborhood support system, featuri ng a few familiar faces from previous Binchy books. As everybody begins to mind Frankie, a suspicious social worker pokes her nose in where it doesn't belong, attempting to dredge up any dirt she can on Noel and his slightly unorthodox network of babysitters. Readers will need a box of tissues handy as the good-hearted residents of St. Jarlath's Crescent prove that it does indeed take a village to raise a child. --Margaret Flanagan Review 'One of Binchy's best works. She harmoniously handles a diverse group of ch aracters, the good deeds that characterize life in Ireland are believable, and the ending is sweet. One hopes to find Frankie in one of Binchy's futur e novels.' --Susan Rogers, Newark Star-Ledger   'Binchy's world view is a large, benevolent one, and the reader is happier for it . . . bless her big Irish heart.' -

A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: Four strangers cross paths in a tiny Greek seaside village in this thin but engaging new novel by bestselling Binchy (Quentins; Circle of Friends). When tragedy strikes the smalltown of Aghia Anna in the form of a devastating fire on a tourist pleasure boat--24 people are killed--elderly barkeeper Andreas and craft-shop owner Vonni find themselves host to a random assortment of travelers who watch the conflagration from Andreas's taverna. There is Elsa, the German beauty who is trying to flee from love; David, the quiet young Englishman whose demanding father wants him to go into the family business; Thomas, the American professor who struggles to share his son with his ex-wife's new husband; and Fiona, the Irish nurse who follows her abusive boyfriend despite the warnings of her friends and family. As these strangers become friends, the mysterious Vonni, an Irish woman whose Greek is fluent and whose respected position in town is unquestioned, explores her own memories of heartache, as does Andreas. Unwilling to see their new friends repeat their mistakes, Andreas and Vonni set out to influence the hearts of this motley bunch of foreigners before they leave the village.

8 Binchy, Maeve NIGHTS OF RAIN AND STARS
Orion 2005 0752865366 / 9780752865362 Paperback Very Good+ 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: In perennially popular Binchy's book, four strangers on holiday in Greece band together after witnessing a tragic boating accident to become friends, and lovers, in an enchanting story that explores the mercurial nature of friendships and the elusive meaning of family. Residents of different countries, the four vacationers discover a commonality: a desire to escape contentious family situations back home. A newly divorced father, Thomas has taken a year's sabbatical to give his young son time to acclimate to his new stepfather. David, a timid Englishman, knows he's disappointing his successful father by not taking over the family business. Elsa, a glamorous German TV reporter, has walked out on a tumultuous love affair, while Fiona is defying family and friends in Ireland by running off with her rebellious boyfriend. Serendipitously, two locals, Andreas and Vonni, befriend the travelers and help them gain perspectives that will put their unsettled lives in order. A beloved storyteller, Binchy excels in the art of the character-driven plot. Although her characters are not necessarily complex, the stories she weaves around them are tales as compelling for their surprises as they are comforting in their sympathetic warmth. Redolent of the life-affirming enthusiasm that is Greek village life, Binchy's newest is a rich homage to meaningful relationships.

A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: Against all odds, two newlyweds manage to buy the house of their dreams. In 1982, property speculation is beginning to be a big, big thing in Dublin-- and their street is very much in an up-and-coming part of town. "They laugh ed and hugged each other. Danny Lynch from the broken-down cottage in the b ack of beyond and Ria Johnson from the corner house in the big, shabby esta te were not only living like gentry in a big Tara Road mansion, they were a ctually debating what style of dining table to buy." But for its various in habitants, the street is to become a boulevard of dreams--some broken, othe rs created anew. Maeve Binchy has long proved herself a secure hand at mult iple story lines, and over the course of 500 satisfying pages she focuses o n Ria; her best friend, Rosemary Ryan, a beautiful, endlessly selfish caree r woman; Gertie, the battered wife of a drunkard; and several other intrigu ing women, each of whom has secrets not to be shared.

At the same time, the Connecticut caller, Marilyn Vine, has her own lessons to learn when she and Ria swap houses for the summer.
