What the Critics Say

"A find...so rich and engrossing you can forget your own problems." (Glamour)
"Reader Kate Binchy, the author's cousin, nimbly carries the listener from England to Ireland and back again. She casts a warm spell as she makes each character come alive, from Elizabeth's staid father, to her roguish lover, to the Polish merchant who teaches her about valuing herself. Like the title's "penny candle," Binchy's personalities glow lingeringly in the listener's mind." (AudioFile)

    "Light a Penny Candle Review"

    This was a warm hearted light story that showed that true friendship can out last any obsticle. I enjoyed listening to it while exercising as it was easy to follow. The narrator does a good job with her British accent bringing the story more to life. It did have rather a quick unexpected ending that I think could have been expanded upon a little, but overall, I'd recommend it.

    "Lacks a driven plot"

    I enjoy Maeve Binchy for her character development. This book however, seemed to end right in the middle of the character's lives and I left feeling like my phone hadn't downloaded the entire book.
