It was a week into our first family holiday abroad, to Turkey, when I was about ten. I had finished all the books I had brought, and had in desperation turned to my mother. She had just finished The Glass Lake and was about the start a Jilly Cooper , which she told me in no uncertain terms I was too young for meaning I immediately found it and hid it under my mattress to read secretly when we got home. I spent the rest of the holiday glued to a sun-lounger, swept away in Binchy-world, a world of tiny villages where everyone knows your business, huge cities where country girls can make good, and the heady, but practical romances that flower from childhood into adult longing mixed with Catholic Guilt. The Glass Lake , first published in , is my favourite purely for being my first.
