In this extraordinary collection of stories, the world-wide best-selling author of Evening Class
once again reveals her incomparable understanding of matters of the heart. In The Return Journey
, Maeve Binchy creates powerful compelling stories of love, loss, revelation, and reconciliation.
A secretary's silent passion for her boss meets the acid test on a business trip; a man and a woman's mutual disdain at first sight shows how deceptive appearances can be; an insecure wife clings to the illusion of order, only to discover chaos at the hands of a house-sitter who opens the wrong doors; a pair of star-crossed travelers pick up each other's bags and then learn when you unlock a stranger's suitcase, you enter a stranger's life.
These and many more poignant, ironic, often humorous stories - unforgettable slices of life - make up The Return Journey, a spellbinding trip into the human heart.
