A group of people, all looking for something more in their lives, and all they have in common is their Italian evening class...

The Italian evening class at Mountainview School is like hundreds of others starting up all over the city. But this class has its own special quality - as the focus for the varied hopes and dreams of teacher and pupils alike. Aidan Dunne needs his new evening class project to succeed almost as much as his pupils do. They too are looking for something more: Bill to find a way to keep spendthrift Lizzie at his side, and Fran to make sure that young Kathy finds her way out from behind the kitchen sink.

The key to their success lies with the Signora. Her passion has drawn her from Ireland to Italy and back home again with a burning desire to share her love of all things Italian - and a secret hidden in her heart...

Another good book. I am rereading her books and enjoying them just as much the second time around.

"Dublin teacher Aidan Dunne has been asked to build a programme of adult education classes at his school. He is delighted when fellow Dubliner Nora O'Donoghue (Signora), who has spent over twenty years in Sicily, offers to teach a class on the language and culture of Italy. In fine Maeve Binchy tradition, the multiple characters in Evening Class alternate viewpoints, come together in unexpected fashion, and eventually reach happy endings - but not before overcoming a few obstacles."

One of my favorite Binchy novels. I love how the lives of these individuals begin to intertwine. It makes me think about all of my personal interactions with the people in my own life and the impact every action has on the world around me.

Possibly my favourite book. The characters are so easy to love (or hate, if that's what Maeve wants us to do) and you feel fantastic after reading the last page.
