The Sheedy sisters had lived in Stone House for as long as anyone could remember. Set high on the cliffs on the west coast of Ireland, overlooking the windswept Atlantic ocean, it was falling into disrepair - until one woman, with a past she needed to forget, breathed new life into the place. Now a hotel, with a big, warm kitchen and log fires, it provides a welcome few can resist. Winnie is generally able to make the best of things, until she finds herself on the holiday from hell. John arrived on an impulse after he missed a flight at Shannon. And then there's Henry and Nicola, burdened with a terrible secret, who are hoping the break at Stone House will help them find a way to face the future ...A WEEK IN WINTER is full of Maeve's trademark warmth, humour and characters you want to spend time with.

No one's stories had entirely satisfying ends. The author tried to fix this by having Freda predict ...

This was one of those no plot books. There is no issue to over come, no resolutions, it's just about the opening week of a bed and breakfast and the events leading up to the guests and owners arrival at that point. It was interesting enough but the book just didn't capture my attention, and I was ...

A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy is what I would call a cosy and easy read but an uninspiring read.I would sum it up as a collection of short stories about different people and how their problems were solved by a week in winter staying at and Irish Hotel. The stories are pretty predictable with no r...

I am sad that this is the last ever Maeve Binchy book. She did not disappoint with this effort and I found myself looking on TripAdvisor to see if I could find a vacation spot like Stone House in the West of Ireland!!Once again, Ms. Binchy's weaves what are essentially short stories, together with ...
