    'A Week in Winter' by Maeve Binchy

    Maeve Binchy passed away on the 30th of July 2012 and to mark the first anniversary of her death, The Book on One this week features her final novel, A Week in Winter.

    The story 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 the lives of those who come to visit.

    The reader is Kate Binchy.

    A Week in Winter is published by Orion Books.
