Molly Sullivan said that the new baby was a little star. She was no trouble at all and she was always smiling - so she became known as Star and no one remembered that her name was Oona. Star Sullivan just wanted everyone to be happy - her father to stop gambling, her mother not to work so hard, her brother to stay out of trouble, her sister to stop worrying about every little thing she ate. Then the Hale family moved in next door, and from the moment Star saw 23-year-old Laddy Hale, everything began to change - until Star was no longer the sweet, thoughtful girl everyone loved and no one worried about...
About the Author
Maeve Binchy was born in Dublin and worked first as a teacher and then for the Irish Times, for which she wrote feature articles and columns. Her first novel, LIGHT A PENNY CANDLE, made her famous in the UK and USA and since then she has written many bestsellers, including CIRCLE OF FRIENDS which was made into a film. She lives in Dublin with her husband, Gordon Snell.
Maeve Binchy is one of today's most successful and best-loved authors. The 2007 World Book Day Quick Read campaign is going to have an even higher profile than last year. All Maeve Binchy's recent novels have been Sunday Times No.1 bestsellers and Guardian fastsellers. There are now over 7 million copies of Maeve Binchy Orion paperbacks in print and she always receives excellent reviews: 'She is one of the few writers who can pull at your heartstrings ... The author's great skill is to draw you into the world she creates, so that reading her books is like gossiping with old friends ... This is a book which would be perfect self-indulgence on a summer's day or one to cheer a rainy one' Daily Express. 'You'll be hooked by the characters from the start and the fine storytelling simply sweeps you along' Woman's Realm. 'Full of characteristic humour and warmth, a lovely read' Sunday Mirror. 'Absorbing and delightful' Sunday Times. 'Drama, humour, warmth and great characters - it's what we expect from Maeve Binchy, one of the world's best-loved writers' Woman's Weekly.
