'Absorbing and delightful' Elizabeth Buchan, Sunday Times
'For anyone who likes good storytelling ... it is like being reunited with old friends' Sunday Express
Every table at Quentins restaurant in Dublin has a thousand stories to tell. The staff and customers all have tales of their own, and the restaurant owners themselves have had more than their fair share of trials to cope with.
Now Ella Brady wants to make a documentary about the renowned restaurant but as she uncovers more of what has gone on, she questions the wisdom of bringing it to the screen. And when she is forced to confront a devastating dilemma in her own life, Ella wonders if some stories should not be told . . .
Superb fiction from the No.1 bestselling author.
From the Publisher
Absorbing and delightful . . . for Binchy's previous readers there is also the pleasure of the familiar, for she thriftily reintroduces a selection of her old characters . . . gently funny, sometimes poignant stories . . . In pinning down the humdrum and the ordinary - debts, the drama of a busy kitchen, a wedding, the ache of childlessness - Binchy makes the point that the profound shift in emotion or spirit can take place while peeling potatoes or waitressing in a restaurant. Her multitude of readers stuck doing much the same instinctively feel this (Elizabeth Buchan SUNDAY TIMES)
All the warmth, humour and insights you expect from Maeve Binchy's writing are here (CHOICE)
She is one of the few writers who can pull at your heartstrings. It is hard to read these stories of love, failure, betrayal and success without wiping a tear from the most cynical eye . . . 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)
Maeve Binchy is back. In exuberant fettle and fine form she's returned to the bestselling bookshelves that everyone feared she'd forsaken for retirement. QUENTINS, her new book, is one for her fans worldwide to really get into: another joyful, absorbing Binchy read with lots of heart (IRISH TIMES)
This is Binchy at her very best, telling stories with charm, humour and pathos and giving us one of the most stunning feel-good endings I can remember (Penny Vincenzi MAIL ON SUNDAY)
This latest work, more novel than short stories, brings back many of her characters from earlier books and, as always, it is like being reunited with old friends . . . there's plenty to move the reader . . . for anyone who likes good storytelling (SUNDAY EXPRESS) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I've read Maeve Binchy on one or two occasions before and thought they were quite enjoyable books, but didn't feel that inclined to read another. However, Quentins was chosen as a book group read and I'm glad I read it. It's very gentle and quite old-fashioned, but it swept me along with it and I found it to be an easy story to read which left me with a sense of satisfaction at the ending.
