A new collection of stories previously unpublished in the United States by beloved and best-selling author Maeve Binchy
Maeve Binchy's best-selling novels not only tell wonderful stories, they also show that while times change, people often remain the same: they fall in love, sometimes unsuitably; they have hopes and dreams; they have deep, long-standing friendships, and others that fall apart. From her earliest writing to her most recent, Maeve's work has included wonderfully nostalgic pieces and also sharp, often witty writing that is insightful and topical. But at the heart of all Maeve's fiction are the people and their relationships with each other."A Few of the Girls"is a glorious collection of the very best of her writing, full of the warmth, charm, and humor that has always been essentially Maeve."

Very fast and easy read. Her same themes, again and again: bad friends, good friends, bad spouses, good spouses, people in extramarital affairs. Boring.

I'm so glad I didn't know this was a book of short stories since I've decided I didn't like short stories. These stories are filled with all I like about Binchey's writing. They are witty stories filled with common sense that provide the same sense of satisfaction of her longer stories.

Maeve is my favourite author I have read all her other books. This one was a good collection of short stories but I prefer a novel that you can get your teeth into.

I got through three stories but it was so frustrating. The story was good but ended too soon. I would have liked to see more of what happened.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Great for those times when you want a good read but don't have the time to commit to a novel.

It took me a bit to get through this book but I took a break then easily finished it. It is what you would expect from Maeve Binchy. I, of course, liked the length of the short stories. It makes reading the book manageable. It was exactly as I expected.

Totally Maeve! What a joy to discover more of her stories that had been published here and there earlier on in her career. Some are very short - others a bit longer.
