A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy

Into the Wild

Read A Week in Winter Online Free - Stoneybridge is a small town on the west coast of Ireland where all the families know one another. When Chicky Starr decides to take an old, decaying mansion set high on the cliffs overlooking the windswept Atlantic Ocean and turn it into a restful place for a holiday by the sea, everyone thinks she is crazy. Helped by Rigger (a bad boy turned good who is handy around the house) and Orla, her niece (a whiz at business), Chicky is finally ready to welcome the first guests to Stone House’s big warm kitchen, log fires, and understated elegant bedrooms. John, the American movie star, thinks he has arrived incognito; Winnie and Lillian are forced into taking a holiday together; Nicola and Henry, husband and wife, have been shaken by seeing too much death practicing medicine; Anders hates his father’s business, but has a real talent for music; Miss Nell Howe, a retired schoolteacher, criticizes everything and leaves a day early, much to everyone’s relief; the Walls are disappointed to have won this second-prize holiday in a contest where first prize was Paris; and Freda, the librarian, is afraid of her own psychic visions.

I started out really liking this book. I loved the premise of setting up a hotel in Ireland and found all the preparations exciting. The first half of the book largely focused on the life of the woman setting up the hotel, and it was enjoyable. However, the book became very boring once the hotel...

The literary world took a huge hit when it lost one of Ireland’s best and most beloved authors, Maeve Binchy, last year. But one shining light was that Maeve had completed her final novel, “A Week In Winter,” before her death, and what a beautiful tribute to this amazing author this final book i...

This book is decidedly cozy. I am not saying that as a bad thing, not remotely. What saves it is that it is not saccharine. Cozy, but not sickly sweet. Neither is it a challenging read, nor are there ideas that will occupy your brain for days, just a belief that taking time for yourself, in pleas...

I've always loved Maeve Binchy and am going to miss her a lot. She's my writer hero and two of my high moments as a writer were having one of my Irish trilogy books appear in a display with her in the Shannon airport duty free shop, and last summer appearing on the New York Times bestseller list...

A Week in Winter- Maeve Binchy's posthumous novel is achingly beautiful, so well written, a gift to any reader, and a sad goodbye to one of the world's most talented writers. Binchy has always held her readers gently in her grasp, telling them stories of people and places that capture our interes...

So bittersweet to finish this Maeve Binchy book, knowing that there will be no more. Once again, it felt like coming home! Love all of the characters presented in this book, all of them traveling to Stoneybridge to either work or stay at Stone House. I think that if you want to read this book, yo...

As posted on my blog: http://nualareilly.wordpress.com/2013... It was in my stocking Christmas morning. Maeve Binchy’s last book; A Week in Winter. I have mentioned before how much I loved her work. How much I identified with her characters and how reading her books made me feel like I was sitting d...

This was a great cozy. I love how MB can creat such ingenious characters that really stick with you. This story is a walk through the lives and backgrounds of a group of people who have never met and are from different places in the world. One week they all end up at a magical bed and breakfast....

Forget vampires, sado-masochism et al, the so-called 'in vogue' genres in the literature of today. Curling up with a Maeve Binchy novel is a bit like snuggling up on a cold winter's night with a big mug of hot chocolate. Like the chocolate, you never want the book to end, yet you cannot put it do...
