NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “Maeve Binchy is a grand storyteller in the finest Irish tradition."—The Plain Dealer

The Journey . . . Every Friday night a lilac-colored minibus leaves Dublin for the Irish country town of Rathdoon with seven weekend commuters on board. All of them, from the joking bank porter to the rich doctor’s daughter, have their reasons for making the journey.

The Destination . . . Rathdoon is the kind of Irish village where family histories are shared and scandals don’t stay secret for long. And this weekend, when the bus pulls in, the riders find the unexpected waiting for them . . . as each of their private lives unfolds to reveal a sharp betrayal of the heart, a young man’s crime, and a chance for new dreams among the eight intriguing men and women on . . . The Lilac Bus

Maeve Binchy - The Lilac Bus Book Reviews

DisappointedI usually just love books by this author, sometimes reading them more than once. The second half of this book was not good, as if someone else had written it..Score: 1/5

Very disjointedI feel like I read authors notes for stories, not a finished product. Multiple storylines that don’t segue or tie back to each other. I kept looking back to see if I somehow skipped over parts or ending of storylines. But the stories and characters were interesting and I would have liked to see them completed..Score: 2/5

The Lilac BusWhat started out with great promise fell woefully short in the second half and ended very flat. There seemed to be a plot building in the chapters about the people on the lilac bus, but rather than tie them together, Ms. Binchey just tacked on more chapters about people not associated with the bus and only very indirectly associated with any of the riders. No point ever emerged. What a letdown..Score: 2/5
