Stoneyville is a small town on the coast of Ireland where all the families know each other. When Chicky decides to take an old decaying mansion, Stone House, and turn it into a restful place for a holiday by the sea, the town thinks she is crazy. She is helped by Rigger (a bad boy turned good who is handy around the place) and her niece Orla (a whiz at business). Finally the first week of paying guests arrive: John, the American movie star thinks he has arrived incognito; Winnie and Lillian, forced into taking a holiday together; Nuala and Henry, husband and wife , both doctors who have been shaken by seeing too much death; Anders, the Swedish boy, hates his father's business, but has a real talent for music; Miss Nell Howe, a retired school teacher, who criticizes everything and leaves a day early, much to everyone's relief; the Walls who have entered in 200 contests (and won everything from a microwave oven to velvet curtains, including the week at Stone House); and Freda , the psychic who is afraid of her own visions. You will laugh and cry as you spend the week with this odd group who share their secrets and might even have some of their dreams come true.… (més)

This was fun... not special. ( )

This book was one of the best ones I've read in a long time. This is my first book from eh author and I will definitely read more of them.
This book was an awesome tale about life itself. I loved how all the characters were somehow connected and they had some stories that involved other guests from Stone House. The characters were well made and there was perfect amount of details. Not too much too small amount either. This story was also very fast based so it was very fast to read too and I really liked that. I really can't wait to read other books by the author ( )

I don't know how many readers realize but "A Week in Winter" was Maeve Binchy's last novel. I made sure the day that I started reading this novel I had nothing else to do in order to slowly savor the novel and delight in her writing like I usually do.

I have been a Maeve Binchy fan for many years and except for one or two of her novels I have loved them all. I love how even with her newest work she still calls upon prior characters and gives you updates about their lives. The newest novels are not sequels in the traditional sense but it still warms me inside that I can read about characters from Whitehorn Woods, Evening Class, and Heart and Soul.

In this newest offering, "A Week in Winter" is typical Maeve Binchy fare. A solid novel telling the tale of many people that surround a particular subject in the novel. In this case, it is about the village of Stoneybridge that resides on the west coast of Ireland.

The main protagonist in this novel is Chicky Starr, who leaves Stoneybridge when she is a girl to follow her lover to America to return more than 20 years later to open a hotel in a former neighbor's falling down mansion.

When we begin the novel we get to hear about Chicky's story to a point before it switches gears to other characters, such as her old school friend Nuala, Nuala's son Rigger, Nuala's brother's new wife Irene, Chicky's niece Orla, and characters who come to stay at Chicky's hotel at Stoneybridge.

What I really loved is that all of the characters stories overlap each other since when we start with Chicky's story she is getting the mansion ready to turn it into a hotel and when you continue on she is still working on getting the hotel ready and then you have the hotel receiving it's first guests.

We also get to see familiar faces that if you are a long time Binchy fan you will love to hear about, like Fiona and Declan from Nights of Rain and Stars and Heart and Soul, or Ania from "Heart and Soul", and Barbara from "Nights of Rain and Stars" as well.

I would definitely recommend this novel to new and old fans of Binchy's work and prepare to savor this novel. I can say with absolute certainty I did not find one thing wrong with this novel and now look forward to reading it again this weekend. I know that I am going to miss her writing and catching up with some of the characters I have known for years now.

Please note I received this novel for free via Amazon's Vine Program. ( )
