Review - Whitethorn Woods

You know, I like Maeve Binchy. She just does what she does so well - nothing fancy, nothing earthshaking, probably will never win a Pulitzer. But if what you want is a good book with engaging characters that will make you feel happy when you are done, Binchy is your girl. This particular effort finds a local priest struggling with the misplaced faith of his congregation - they insist on believing a local well can work miracles. His own sister even seems to believe! And when a proposition to build a highway through the area creates conflict, it's the townsfolk who figure out a way to save the well. Just makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over.
