From the Back Cover
At Notting Hill, a mysterious secretary harbours a secret on her journey to work; at Highbury and Islington, a young man has a sudden change of heart; while at Holborn, a disastrous reunion is about to take place…
From Green Park to Brixton, Shepherd’s Bush to Chancery Lane, the nameless faces travelling on the Tube each have their own tales to tell. In this vintage collection of stories, Maeve Binchy brings this cross-section of London society vividly to life with her unforgettable humour and compassion.

‘Reading these tales is like listening to someone talking: someone you very much want to hear’
Sunday Telegraph

‘An adept storyteller with a sharp eye or social nuances and a pleasing
affection for her characters’
Sunday Times

This turned up in my goody bag yesterday at the Anniversary BC Convention at Imperial College, London. I've never read a Maeve Binchy book before as none have ever really caught my attention but this looks quite interesting - little snippets of life from different angles - has potential worth investigating.

It's taken a while but I have now had the delight of reading these stories in one sitting - a rare treat indeed whilst shivering in bed with a heavy cold and hotwater bottle (in August!) Wanting to be faced with an enjoyable and easy read this fitted the bill nicely with nothing too taxing to think about. The mastery of the writing is that although the book is now thirty years old, human nature is remains the same.

Will give some thought now as to moving it along...

Left on a Northern Line tube train between Tottenham Court Road and Waterloo Station - sadly the Central Line was closed for engineering works so my route had to change!
