I have only found out of this tragic news, 8/Nov 2013.As a busy mum I found sanctuary in her stories. From New Zealand, she gave me great joy. Thank God for this gift. Rest easy.

I find the death of my dear friend so very sad. I will miss her and her wealth of work that she left so lovingly behind. Now, she is experiencing other settings and greater stories to tell and write about. Perhaps Mrs. Binchy, knew better than we. I pray she will have many novels ready for all her fans, when we too cross the bar. I know she will smile and put on a pot of tea as only she can do. God bless you and keep you always writing. We'll be there only too soon to read the next best seller. You will be truly missed by all who loved you or had ever had the opportunity to read any of your books. God Bless You until we meet again...

What a rich legacy that she left us. Her writings will be missed.

I came upon Mauve's books many, many years ago, read each one and kept them all. As soon as I finished one, I'd eagerly (and impatiently) look forward to the next one. They were so hard to put down; you were sad when you came to each one's final page. I haven't read her final book yet - so what a treat that will be! When I learned of her passing last year, I was so very, very sad; she was one of the best. She always touched you with her characters, making them so real - you felt you almost knew them! . I was born in England; leaving for Canada as a young girl, a few years after WW II. However, the way Mauve wrote about village life and its people, brought village life so vividly back to me. So thank you, Mauve, for my reading pleasure; my deepest sympathy goes to Gordon and the family. I wish I had had the chance to meet her to say, in person, a heartfelt thank you for sharing her writing talents with the world.

Her passing is sad news for those, like me, who love her stories. She will be greatly missed. May God rest her soul in Christ Jesus, our Savior and Lord.

I've loved Ms. Binchy's work since I read Light a Penny Candle and then I had to read all of her works.Her books have a shelf unto themselves, and NOTHING else goes on that shelf.I went to Dalkey, Ireland in 2001 and that day she was in Dublin but I was honored to meet her husband and publisher at Finnegan's.The next year I met her at Finnegan's and she was so gracious to this crass American who interrupted her business lunch with her husband and her publisher to talk to me about her upcoming work.She asked my son's name, who took a picture of me with her, and made me feel as though I was a friend, as I always do when I read her work.Rest in Peace my precious Ms Binchy, and may St. Peter say Fáilte go Neamh.God bless you Mr. Snell and Joan, and I'm sorry for your troubles.

The first book of Maeve's was Quentins. I had to read them all. I will miss her stories and her storytelling. Sleep well.

I am very saddened to hear of the passing of Maeve Binchy. She was my favourite author. My favourite book of hers was "The Glass Lake". I read this when I was going through a divorce and had had an affair even though I am not really a bad person and could really identify with the character and her regrets. I love the way her characters had a bad side and a good side rather than being one sided. I will miss checking at the library every time to see if there was a new novel. Her novels did add pleasure to many holidays and quiet evenings at home. Rest in peace. We are thankful for what you gave us.
