Synopsis

Star Sullivan by Maeve Binchy

Molly Sullivan said that the new baby was a little star. She was no trouble at all and she was always smiling… so she became known as Star and no one remembered that her name was Oona.

Star Sullivan just wanted everyone to be happy - her father to stop gambling, her mother not to work so hard, her brother to stay out of trouble, her sister to stop worrying about every little thing she ate.

Then the Hale family moved in next door, and from the moment Star saw 23-year-old Laddy Hale, everything began to change - until Star was no longer the sweet, thoughtful girl everyone loved and no one worried about...

Fellow novelist SOPHIE KING on MAEVE BINCHY

I was only a teenager when I discovered Maeve and I've always loved her books but the one that sticks out in my mind is Evening Class. It's told from the point of view of different characters - which is what I do in my own books. It's a wonderful way of getting into the characters' heads and also to move the plot along.
