Once again I love how Maeve Binchy shaped short stories. I read this one after "Evening Class" and wished that I had this one first. That's because some of the people in this collection show up in other Binchy works.
The first part of the book talks about how the Whitehorn woods are under threat. The location of a sacred well (St. Ann's) that people come to, to tell their tales to in order to get help is sometimes moving and other times sad.
"The Sharpest Knife in the Drawer" talks about a young man that is seen as not being as smart as others. Even though that may be true, his trust in people and other things definitely shows how good a person he is. His family is fairly terrible though.
The main character of Father Brian Flynn shows up in a few books and is what I would consider the main character. He is dealing with his sister being back and his terrible brother who has left his wife for another woman.
