    Story
    (16)

    It began with Benny Hogan and Eve Malone, 2 inseparable young Irish women, growing up in the village of Knockglen. Benny, an only child, yearning to break free from her adoring parents and Eve, an orphan, abandoned to be raised by nuns, seemed an unlikely pair. Together, Eve and Benny knew the sins and secrets behind every villager's lace curtains...except their own. The pair becomes a circle when Benny and Eve leave for university in Dublin, and meet beautiful Nan Mahon and Jack Foley, a doctor's handsome son. But heartbreak and betrayal would bring the worlds of Knockglen and Dublin into explosive collision. Long-hidden lies would emerge to test the meaning of love and the strength of ties held within the fragile gold bands of a...Circle Of Friends.

    What would have made Circle of Friends better?

    The actual book was great; this abridgement of the book cut too much out so that the characters were not developed. Also, the quality of the audio was not very good.


    What was most disappointing about Maeve Binchy’s story?

    Most disappointing was that the abridged version cut so much out that the characters were not developed as they are in the full version.


    What didn’t you like about Fionnula Flanagan’s performance?

    Her performance was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Circle of Friends?

    I would not have cut anything; I would have read the entire book.
