From Library Journal

The chaos of World War II London sends preteen Elizabeth White to the safety of Ireland and into the lives of the much larger and emotional O'Connor family. The enduring friendship she finds with her counterpart, Aisling, forms the framework of this novel, offering clear contrasts between the two families and countries. The early chapters of Binchy's 1982 debut novel are engagingly humorous, filled with solid characterizations of these two very different but compatible adolescents. The girls sustain their friendship and distinct personalities through regular letters, but unfortunately they must grow up and the novel may strain under the conventionality of the genre and some inconsistency, perhaps due to Binchy's inexperience as an author at the time she wrote the original story. Her cousin Kate Binchy reads the book well, capturing the innocence, yearning, and growth of the girls. Recommended for larger fiction collections.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another masterpeice by Binchy 27. Juni 2000
From the first page I found myself utterly attached to the wonderful characters. They were real people surrounded by both aweful problems and wonderful influences. I learned a lot about myself and friendship from this book. It doesn't sugarcoat real world issues. The characters are forced to deal and move on. The ending was a suprise and even though it was a downer it was good. The book offers so much to a young person like myself and I think everyone who likes cute but deep books should read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book was excellent! 1. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I've read only one other book of Binchy's (Evening Class),but I plan on reading many, many more! Binchy is wonderful at story-telling, and at developing her characters. I could envision every little detail. I honestly could not put it down, and I never wanted it to end, but as they say, "all good things must come to an end."

This book was one of the best books that I have read. I was enthralled and found it very difficult to put it down even for a moment. The women and their lives are so real. It took me to a different time and a different world. So wonderfully written that I felt I was was with these women feeling their triumphs and pain and sorrow. I laughed and I cried. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an escape. A chance to visit a different era. I look forward to reading it again and again.

3.0 von 5 Sternen my review 24. April 2000
This is the story of two girls from different backgrounds, characters, cultures and looks, who become friends and remain the same even after they suffer different life shattering events. No husbands, or family members or work are able to separate them.
This is a great book of friendship. Very well written and the characters are very well defines and presented.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Quite a disappointing read 20. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I found this novel by Binchy to be quite disappointing. I kept reading in the hopes that it would turn around at some point. I felt the characters' friendship could have been more developed in the beginning. By the end of the novel their whole characterization had gone down hill, I think she supstitued two new personalities for Elizabeth and Aisling. Not to mention the dismal view the author must hold of marriage. I mean really, it's not that bad every time around.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the Best novels I've ever read 2. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This is my favorite Maeve Binchy novel and one of my favorite stories. It explores a beautiful friendship between two girls who grow up together and are influenced by a volitile world and rather different family situations.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing fare from a wonderful writer 7. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I liked this book at first, until the last part got really depressing and I found myself just plowing through it. Binchy doesn't exactly write happy-go-lucky stories, but this one takes the cake for melodramatic plotlines. I found myself completely losing sympathy for Elizabeth. If you're looking for a GOOD Binchy novel, try "The Glass Lake" or "Circle of Friends".

1.0 von 5 Sternen *Not* a story of friendship
This book was disappointing in that the two characters had very few admirable features. Elizabeth's "romantic" relationship as a young woman was dismal and depressing,... Lesen Sie weiter...

4.0 von 5 Sternen A most heart-warming story
This is the first book I have read from Binchy, and I found the first three parts to be wonderful and sad at the same time. It was terribly hard to pry myself away. Lesen Sie weiter...

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book.
I loved every moment of this book and often found it very difficult to put it down. Binchy is an expert storyteller who involves the reader in her tales of everyday life. Lesen Sie weiter...

1.0 von 5 Sternen A most disappointing book by a great author
The first half of the book is great. However, the second half (after Elizabeth gets back to London) is getting worse and worse, the more you read. Lesen Sie weiter...
