Sad news that Irish author Maeve Binchy has died age 72.

I enjoyed her books and am currently reading one of them.

RIP

I'm familiar with the name thanks to two main points of exposure - my wife's bedside (where there's a stack of her books) and at airport bookshops!

Light a Penny Candle was an excellent book, she had such a 'flowy' writing style that really drew you in.
Sad to think there will be no new books from her.
