A story written in stages throughout the author's career traces the experiences of diverse characters who come and go from Chestnut Street.
"While she was writing columns for The Irish Times and her best-selling novels, Maeve Binchy also had in mind to write a book that revolved around one street with many characters coming and going. Every once in a while, she would write about one these people. She would then put it in a drawer. "For the future," she would say. The future is now.

This is the first Maeve Binchy book I've read. While each story was either happy or sweet or sad (etc.) there was really nothing special about any one of them. And while good, her writing style is also nothing special -- a bit plain like the people in them. A bit like real life, isn't it?
