Not knowing which faction to favor, Father Flynn listens to all those caught up in the conflict, and these are the voices we hear in the stories of Whitethorn Woods: men and women deciding between the traditions of the past and the promises of the future, ordinary people brought vividly to life by Maeve Binchy's generosity and empathy, and in the vivacity and surprise of her storytelling.
Binchy is at the very top of her form in this irresistible tale. Look out for the unabridged version of Whitethorn Woods, available March 27th!
