Publisher's Summary

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....

Another good book for Maeve Binchy enthusiasts.

If you could sum up A Week in Winter in three words, what would they be?

Warm, Fuzzy, Irish

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Satisfaction!

What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love her voice...this is one of the reasons I listened to this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No...it is the perfect book to listen to over a period of time as each chapter is from the perspective of a different character.

Any additional comments?

Such a loss when Maeve Binchy died...she did write lovely books.

I love Maeve Binchy

Once again, I've said it a million times, I felt like I was sitting at the table enjoying a cup of tea as a tale was spun about regular everyday people around me. Caroline Lennon is one of my all time favourite narrators so that is a bonus. The only reason my story review got 4 stars was because all of the characters in the novel experienced consequences for actions and dealt with the aftermath except the main character. I felt robbed that her story didn't come to light. It made it tough for me to respect her as a person - her secret was a giant one but yet she was quite content to deceive. Maybe it is just me and my belief that people are inherently honest. I couldn't deal with the guilt if it were me.

Great listen.

Wonderful as always, Maeve!

What a wonderful story following the lives of various characters who happen to come together in a new guest house. Maeve Binchy has such a beautifull way of building up her colourful characters!



The narration was spot on. I've always found Kate Binchy's narration of her cousin's work a great listen, but Caroline Lennon did the novel perfect justice!



Rest in Peace, Maeve Binchy. I have loved your writing for years , and will continue to re-read / re-listen again and again.

Wow :-)

I really enjoyed this book!



It has been several years since I last picked up a Maeve Binchy book. I'm glad I picked up this - great story. A good mix of characters and their history to keep you listening to the end.

Long winded.

Not Maeve's best book. It drags out too much. If half as long would have been enjoyable. The narrator is good but I much prefer Kate.
Time for a change.
