Publisher's Summary

From Maeve Binchy's earliest writings to the most recent, her work is filled with wisdom and common sense and also a sharp, often witty voice that is insightful and reaches out to her audiences around the world and of all ages. Whether it is one of her best-selling novels or a short story, Maeve shows us that times may have changed, but people often remain the same: They fall in love, sometimes unsuitably; they have hopes and dreams; they have deep, longstanding friends whose secrets are shared; they go on holidays and celebrate new jobs....

A Few of the Girls is a glorious collection of the very best of her short story writing, stories that were written over the decades - some published in magazines, others for friends as gifts, many for charity benefits. The stories are all filled with the signature warmth and humor that have always been an essential part of Maeve's appeal.

    "Not Binchy's best but still worth it."

    For me, nothing will live up to Tara Road but that's unfair and I know it. I still enjoy Maeve Binchy's writing. This collection, not as much but again I understand that when people pass away there's a scramble to Publish every single idea that ever popped into their heads. It was a pleasant if not great listen with terrific readers and a good lesson in short story writing for aspiring writers.

    "I have so much love for Maeve Binchy"

    So many wonderful stories and perspectives on life. I only wish there were a hundred more of her books to read.

    Story
    "Narrated with a lisp?"

    One of the narrators seemed to speak with a lisp. I thought it to be part of the story line, but it was not. When I heard her again in another of the short stories I was surprised and distracted by it.
