This short, contemporary novel by Maeve Binchy has been translated into Irish. It's well worth the effort, students of Irish! (We read it in my study group.) The kind of book you stay up too late reading, dictionary at your side, just to find out what happens next.
Not to give away too much, here's the basic story line:
In the home where she raised her children, Nan lives alone, enjoying her retirement, worrying about her grown children, delighted at their visits. Nan wonders what will happen at the empty house next door and why the young couple who lived there moved away without a word. Soon, builders (contractors) arrive and begin fixing it up for sale. One builder slowly becomes a friend; he and Nan work to unravel a mystery. Suspense, conflict, confrontation -- in more ways than one -- is in store. And always, Maeve Binchy's wonderful, sly, wise sense of humor. She was a great storyteller.
