Book Review: “Minding Frankie”

I have enjoyed Maeve Binchy’s books since she first wrote “Circle of Friends”.  They are unimportant tales of people’s lives in Ireland.  They are engaging page-turners, but very sweet rather than spicy.  She writes about hairdressers and restauranteurs, regular working people.  Even the doctors aren’t rich, but struggling young doctors.  She writes about young families, illness, relationships, and love.

“Minding Frankie” is no exception.  A group of unlikely people join together after the birth of a baby girl from unusual circumstances.  Alcoholism, education, death, late in life marriages, one way love affairs, and jealousies abound.  It will not change your life, but it’s definitely a good one to tide you over until the sun comes out.
