Glue. Maeve Binchy’s latest novel, Minding Frankie, invites readers to spend time with a large cast of characters bound together in a closely knit community in Dublin. She reprised some characters from earlier novels and introduced and developed new ones to satisfy both new readers and longtime fans. The ties that bind us together are often those of family, and sometimes they come from the kindness and caring of neighbors and strangers. The many imperfect lives Binchy presents in this novel find love where it happens to be, and build on these ties in ways that will satisfy most readers who enjoy character-based fiction.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
