About Maeve Binchy

Maeve Binchy was born in County Dublin and came to fame first as London Correspondent for the Irish Times. Her first novel, Light A Penny Candle made her famous in the UK and USA. She lives in County Dublin with her husband, Gordon Snell. Olivia Caffrey trained at the Samuel Beckett Centre of Trinity College, Dublin, and has since worked on stage in several Dublin and London threatres. She appeared in Ballykissangel and was a regular in Playing the Field on television, and her films include The Matchmaker and Oliver Twist alongside Richard Dreyfuss. She featured in a 'Play of the Week' for Radio 4, but this is her first audiobook. Nevertheless, she demonstrates a great ability to create and differentiate characters in just a phrase or two.show more
