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.

Maeve,
You gave a place of solace, interest and sometimes laughter when times were tough.

A friend at work introduced me to Maeve's books and I was hooked from then on. Her writing is so descriptive she makes you feel as though you are right there in that moment, at that time. I am saddened to hear of her passing, my heart goes out to her family, friends and of course all of her loyal readers. I will cherish every word read!

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.

May her noble soul be at the right hand of God.

Rest in peace, Maeve.
