LoveReading View on Heart and Soul

The brand new novel from Maeve Binchy is another tale of family and relationship dramas. The story centres round Clara Casey, who is finding her two grown daughters more of a handful now than when they were teenagers. Not only that but her new job as a senior cardiac specialist has just started and everyone seems to want a piece of her.

Father Flynn risks having his reputation torn to shreds and Declan is looking forward to joining a quiet country clinic. The perfect set up from some great story telling in Binchy’s inimitable style.

Clara Casey has more than enough on her plate. Her daughters Adi and Linda were no problem at all during the usually turbulent teens. Now in their twenties, Adi is always fighting for or against something: the environment or the whale or battery farming; while Linda lurches from one unsatisfactory relationship to the next. As if this wasn't enough, Clara, a senior cardiac specialist, has a new job to cope with...

Declan is looking forward to joining the clinic - but the six-month posting brings him much more than he expected. Then there's Father Brian Flynn, who finds his doubts about his calling are assuaged by work in his new parish. But when an acquaintance turns into a nightmare he needs help to rescue his reputation...
