Benny (Bernadette) Hogan is 10 years old and expectant about her birthday party. She hopes that she will receive a velvet dress and shoes with pom poms for her birthday. Unfortunately she is a large girl and her overprotective parents dress her in dark colors with sensible cuts. She makes a friend of Eve Malone, an orphan who is being raised by Mother Francis and the nuns at St. Marys convent. The two girls are inseparable until it comes time for them to leave for college in Dublin. Benny is going, but Eve is to do a secretarial course in Dublin while living in Mother Clare's convent there. Unfortunately, things do not work out well with Mother Clare and Eve is hospitalized after she is hit in an accident. This gives her time to think about school. She determines to get the money for her college from her estranged cousin Simon Westward. The two girls meet several new people on their first days in Dublin: Jack Foley, a doctor's son and astonishingly handsome; Nan Mahon, a beautiful girl and daughter of a drunken and abusive builder; Aiden Lynch, Jack's soccer friend from high school; Bill Dunne, another soccer friend; and two girls, Rebecca and Sheila who have set their cap for Jack Foley. The entire story takes place in 1957-58 in Knockglen and Dublin, Ireland. ( )

This book was over 700 pages! Seriously. At one point I nodded off and I think my finger kept moving or something so I woke up to a totally different place in the book, and did not go back. I just couldn't.

I really do love Maeve Binchy's works and since I saw the movie version of this, I really wanted to read this. If I had known how long it was and how some parts deviated from the book though, I would have passed.

I think the biggest issue is that at first the book focuses on two school children (Benny Hogan and Eve Malone) and we somehow fast forward through their childhood to when they move onto Dublin and meet another student named Nan. And then the book starts working in Nan's third person POV as well so she became a sort of third main character to the book. I rather wish we hadn't delved into Nan so much and just focused on Benny and Eve. And also, the book did not need to be as long as it was for us to get to the main point. The main point being apparently, once a cheater, always a cheater.

I think that Binchy over time was able to edit herself more and keep the plot moving much better in her later books. The flow in this book was pretty bad. Things were repeatedly said about the same person over and over again. I started rooting for nuns to die (just for something to happen).

I think once the book moved firmly to the Dublin section it just got worse in my eyes. We get even more characters thrown at us and I just wanted to tell everyone to just have sex and be done with it. Reading about the girls that would, the girls that wouldn't, how boys wanted it, and everything in between was boring. I think this was touted as a coming of age story and blah. I prefer the movie version of this. ( )

Maeve Binchy really knows what she's doing. This book was serendipitously hilariously relatable to me because I am currently having to commute to a suburb early in the evening while trying to build a social life in grad school. ( )

What a wonderful old hardback with wildly colorful red poppy end papers echoing the cover!

And, what a different perspective from the dismal Country Girls!

Maeve Binchy creates the exact feelings and behaviors of living in a small Irish country town
and adds humor, as in Benny and Eve's Wise Woman predictions about the future of their townspeople
and with the unwelcome entrance of Fonzie and Clodagh.

Knockglen will be a place to visit again and again, a place where secrets do not dominate the story:
"But it's not a mystery or a crime or anything, is it?" Maybe all three...

Favorite characters were Clodagh, Heather, and Sister Mary Francis.

Plot stretches, which led to the book being overlong, include:
men not using simple birth control after all the women they had enjoyed in their lives
and Eve forgiving Jack for betrayals to her little home and her best friend.
He should have stayed as far away as Nan.

And, I could have lived without "fly cemeteries." blech. ( )

The 5 star is a product of my younger self. I adored this book when I was a teen, and read it countless times. ( )
