Four foreign tourists visited a small Greek town named Aghia Anna. They did not know each other before the trip having come from different parts of the world. I thought tourists are happy lots when they are travelling on a holiday. But not for these four visitors. They travelled to this Greek town to escape from their own personal problems. Those, who were in this Greek town, serving the tourists had their own personal problems too.
This was the start of reading Maeve Binchy’s novel. Once started, I could not put the book down. I just wanted to know how the personal anguish and unhappiness were resolved for the main players in the story. In this regard, the author was good at hooking me right from the beginning. That was Maeve Binchy’s strength in writing novels with rich human emotions. She made the story real and believable. We can learn something from these human interactions.
