Bought from "Bruktboka", a second hand book store in Hønefoss, Norway.

"Everything is changing in Rossmore. No longer a sleepy Irish town, nowadays it's a prosperous place, so busy that a new bypass has been proposed.

The people of Rossmore are divided, particularly since the road will go tughte through the Whitetorn Woods and the well dedicated to St Ann - a well thought by some to have spiritual properties, and by others dismissed as a superstition, Well-meaning curate Father Brian Flynn has no idea which faction to support. Neddy Nolan is being offered compensation for his land - but has a personal reason to save the well. Then there's the childless London woman who came to the Whitethorn Woods, begging the saint for help, with the most unexpected concequences...

Full of Maeve Binchy's warmth, humour and compassion, Whitethorn Woods tells of the people of Rossmore, each with their own story, as they wait for the great road of progress..."

Sent this book for the Colour Sweepstake. I hope you'll enjoy it!

(I have to admit it was a bit tempting to read this book before I sent it... But I picked up this book for the sweepstake because it took me so long to read the colour book I had at home, so it would be a bit pointless then to read this book now!)

Thank you for the book. I have been wanting to read this much loved novel, so I am delighted that you substituted this for the original pick. Thank you for the sweet note.

As I recently received another copy of this book, I am releasing this one so it can find a new home and need not sit waiting on my shelf.
