A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy, read by Kate Binchy
29 July- 2 August

To mark the first anniversary of the death of the much-loved writer Maeve Binchy, The Book on One this week features her final novel, ‘A Week in Winter’ which she finished just before her death in July 2012. ‘A Week in Winter’ is set in a small Irish town on the Atlantic Coast of Ireland. It tells the story of Geraldine Starr, known to everyone as Chicky, who leaves Stoneybridge as a young woman, only to return twenty years later to turn the rambling old Stone House into a hotel, a project which changes her life as well as those who come to visit.

A Week in Winter is published by Orion Books.
