finished reading...

This was bittersweet--it is more than likely the final work by one of my favorite authors, Maeve Binchy. Over the course of her career, she continually wrote character sketches, vignettes, and short stories centered around one Dublin neighborhood. Chestnut Street is the common thread through these pieces. I wish my neighborhood was like Chestnut Street. Several times I wished there would be more to the story, but, alas, there will be no more. Any fan of Ms. Binchy will gobble this up.

Agreed! I thought several of the chapters could definitely have been turned into complete books.
Reading this also made me want to go back and read some of her novels that I missed over the years.
I'm glad you enjoyed this as much as I did!
