From Publishers Weekly

Binchy ( Circle of Friends ; The Lilac Bus ) is a consummate storyteller with a unique ability to draw readers into her tales of Irish life. Here again she mines sources rich in plot and character to produce a captivating narrative. The eponymous copper beech is a huge tree that shades the tiny schoolhouse in the village of Shancarrig. For generations, graduating pupils have carved their initials on the massive trunk, and the book examines what has become of some of them. Though each of the 10 chapters offers the perspective of a single character, Binchy adroitly indicates the ways in which their lives intersect. Thus, the allegedly stolen jewels that are discovered and stolen again in one early chapter become significant in later chapters. Long after two adulterous characters sneak into a Dublin hotel, it emerges that they were spotted by a small soul from Shancarrig, who passes on the information--with unforeseen consequences. A priest's dalliance with the sweet young schoolteacher is shown to have been been suspected by others in the village. The result is a charming and compelling series of interlocking stories about ordinary people who are given dimension through Binchy's empathetic insight. While this book is more fragmentary in structure than some of her previous novels, it should leave Binchy's fans wholly satisfied. BOMC main selection.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A beautfiul novel of love, friendship and community 12. April 1999
Von Jeffrey
My exposure to Maeve Binchy has been recent. Last year with the publication of "Evening Class" and this year with "Tara Road" - Ms. Binchy writes with authority and wisdom leaving me to ponder: "Where have I been all these years?" Her novels - revolving around life in Ireland - detail the universal emotion of life, love and loss no matter what country we may dwell in or what language we may speak. Therefore, I have decided to take a step backwards and read Ms. Binchy's previous works and, in this case, her 1992 novel, "The Copper Beech." This is a novel to be read and re-read for its sheer beauty. "The Copper Beech" tells the story of a town called Shancarrig - meaning old rock for the massive structure which centers the town. In particular, the novel focuses on Shancarrig school and its inhabitants. The beauty of this novel is derived by the symbolic construction in which the story unfolds. Each section is devoted to either one of the schoolchildren, teachers or members of the community. It is as if each character represents a branch of the copper beech and as each life unfolds and comes together with each other, they form the tree. And just as a tree needs tending to grow - sun, water and soil - so does the town of Shancarrig. Each member of this community brings together the love, nuturing and devotion which makes their community grow and prosper. What a marvelous piece of imagery Maeve Binchy has created. This novel is filled with eloquent prose and dialogue with an ending that will tug at your heart. We are fortunate to have Ms. Binchy and I will be waiting with breathless energy to read not only all of her previous works but of the many more which are sure to follow.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Feel-Good Book 24. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book is just like a soothing balm, about hopes, dreams, friendship and love. It definitely leaves a feel-good after-taste with the reader. My only complaint is that it tends to be too simplistic and things tend to work out too well in the end for the story to be believable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful read 8. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This is the first book of hers I read. I was so taken with her writing and characters that I had to go out and find anything else she had in print. She has an easy way of making the characters come alive and you feel as if you are in Ireland with them. It makes me want to take a trip to Ireland just to get a feel of the people and the land. She is my favorite author since the first book I read and I will read anything she has to print. Keep up the wonderful writing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Maeve Binchy at one of her best 19. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This is a simple story. Story of the lives of the kids in Shancarrig, and the copper beech that grew near the schoolhouse that had become an important symbol of their young lives. Those kids grew up, some had managed to change their way of life to better standards, but a few just had to be content with the little things their life had to offer. To me, this story is simply about growing up, and making changes in ones life.
