Scarlet Feather by Maeve Binchy

I finished this last night before going to sleep, but I didn't have a chance to write about it until now... this is a great book, and well worth re-reading. For some reason I tend to overlook it when I'm thinking back over my favourite Maeve Binchy novels, but it's got all the ingredients for a satisfying read. I love the way she captures the whole range of human experiences and the ups and downs of relationships, and this book has all those things in spades - everything from miscarriage to death, from new love to the slow and painful ending of a marriage.

Now I have to go and write an exam, so I can't think of anything else to say about this book. Maybe I'll go and start "Evening Class" to calm my nerves.
