Full House by Maeve Binchy

Full HouseI’ve read a couple of Maeve Binchy books over the years–and always loved them. So when I say this “vintage short original” for .99 on kindle, I snatched it up. And what a delightful read it was! And while it was funny to read about Dee and Liam’s 20-something kids, it made me so very grateful I didn’t have to live these issues with my own, by the grace of God!

Here’s the blurb from Amazon: They hadn’t intended it to be a full house. Dee and Liam had thought that their children would leave home one by one and come to see them on weekends. Wouldn’t that be nice? But Helen had never left; Rosie got married but not for long; Anthony writes songs and will be a sensation someday. And Dee wonders what she did wrong. Instead of enjoying her “old age,” she is taking care of everyone else. When a crisis occurs Dee takes charge and decides that something has to change—much to everyone’s surprise.
