About the Author
Irish-born Maeve Binchy is a teacher turned newspaper columnist turned novelist. She was born in Dublin on May 28, 1940. Her father was a lawyer and her mother a nurse. She received her B.A. in 1960 from University College in Dublin. After teaching at a school for girls, she became a columnist for the Irish Times in 1968. By 1979, Binchy was writing plays, a successful television script, and several short story collections. Her first novel, Light a Penny Candle (1982), was a Literary Guild Dual Selection. Two of her novels, Silver Wedding (1989) and Circle of Friends (1991), have been Book-of-the-Month Club selections. Currently, there are more than six million copies of her books in print. Binchy's novels are usually set in rural Ireland, where Binchy seems to capture the dynamics of life and relationships in small towns. A Circle of Friends, successfully translated into a popular film, is the coming-of-age story of three young women in 1950s Dublin. Binchy lives in a suburb of Dublin.

Her stories crackle with the true charm and observational wit of an
Irish writer. Maeve Binchy is back at her best in
her latest novel, Tara Road. Poor Ria
Lynch has just found out that her husband has a pregnant, young
mistress. Ria decides to trade her gorgeous Victorian house on Tara
Road for a few weeks of the summer living in a home in New England.
Two women exchange homes and neighbours and enter into totally
different worlds. They experience love, friendship, petty rivalry,
intense jealousy and discover some secrets along the way.
