Critical Praise

"Interweaving the domestic narratives of a dissimilar collection of individuals is beloved Binchy's stock-in-trade, and once again, she does so with sublime ease, inventively engaging readers through a reassuring and persuasive combination of gracious warmth, gentle humor, and genuine affection."


"Good-hearted [and] entertaining... [Heart and Soul] reflects a pervasive generosity of spirit [and] offers many honest pleasures."

—Bill Sheehan, The Washington Post

"Another delightful Binchyesque amalgamation of intersecting lives...the collective, charming effect of these story lines suggests that individuals are more connected than they might think."

Publishers Weekly

"Only a curmudgeon could resist this master of cheerful, read-by-the-fire comfort."
