The down side of keeping all the horrid stuff of today out of my everyday life by not watching the news on TV has also denied me the sad news of Maeve Binchy’s passing away, 1940- 30 July 2012. AOL (Huntington Post) has let me down by not announcing it on the internet.
I’ve read her stories since she began writing them in 1978, giving us a peek into daily life in Ireland, always looking ahead for a new one, not wanting to miss anything she wrote. It is sad that we won’t be reading any new books by Maeve Binchy. Oops, a last minute detail……..A Week in Winter was completed and will be published posthumously.
