Just round the corner from St Jarlath's Crescent (featured in Minding Frankie) is Chestnut Street. Here, the lives of the residents are revealed in Maeve Binchy's wonderfully compelling tales: Bucket Maguire, the window cleaner, who must do more than he bargained for to protect his son. Nessa Byrne, who's aunt comes to visit from America for six weeks every summer and turns the house - and Nessa's world - upside down.
Lilian, the generous girl with a big heart, and the fiancé not everyone approves of. And Melly, whose gossip about the neighbours leads to trouble in the form of a fortune teller, 'Madame Magic'...
No one rivals Maeve Binchy for stories of warmth, kindness, love, loss - and life not always turning out as expected.

It takes time to get used to rhythm of short story format but it is worth it. A great collection.
I absolutely loved this audio book. The characters as usual all believable and the narrator was wonderful. Such an insight into Irish life and people. Well recommended
True to life.
As always Kate's lovely voice makes listening a pleasure
Yes, definitely did not want it to end
I'm not a fan of short stories but still thoroughly enjoyed this collection from the master story teller herself!
