Summary

In this extraordinary collection of stories, the world-wide best-selling author of Evening Class once again reveals her incomparable understanding of matters of the heart. In The Return Journey, Maeve Binchy creates powerful, compelling stories of love, loss, revelation, and reconciliation.

A secretary's silent passion for her boss meets the acid test on a business trip; a man and a woman's mutual disdain at first sight shows how deceptive appearances can be; an insecure wife clings to the illusion of order, only to discover chaos at the hands of a house-sitter who opens the wrong doors; a pair of star-crossed travellers pick up each other's bags, and then learn when you unlock a stranger's suitcase, you enter a stranger's life.

These and many more poignant, ironic, often humorous stories, unforgettable slices of life, make up The Return Journey, a spellbinding trip into the human heart.

Excellent

I downloaded The Return Journey to listen to on my beach holiday. Maeve Binchy is my favourite author and the fact that it is read with an irish accent added to the enjoyment. Great freedom to just relax and listen rather than having to sit up and turn pages. This is the way forward for booklovers.
