With the insight, humor, and compassion we have come to expect from her, Maeve Binchy tells a story of family, friends, patients, and staff who are part of a heart clinic in a community caught between the old and the new Ireland.Dr. Clara Casey has been offered the thankless job of establishing the underfunded clinic and agrees to take it on for a year. She has plenty on her plate already--two difficult adult daughters and the unwanted attentions of her ex-husband--but she assembles a wonderfully diverse staff devoted to helping their demanding, often difficult patients.Before long the clinic is established as an essential part of the community, and Clara must decide whether or not to leave a place where lives are saved, courage is rewarded, and humor and optimism triumph over greed and self-pity. Heart and Soul is Maeve Binchy at her storytelling best.From the Hardcover edition.

Well - yes , I'm disappointed - because I thought Maeve Binchy was a literary fiction writer , and I'm wrong - she's a pop fiction writer

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! There was at one point where Maeve Binchy had declared her retirement from writing. I am glad she changed her mind. She is one of my favourite authors of all time.

A typical Maeve Binchy book, that makes you feel good reading about people who always say the right thing at the right time.

I was disappointed by this book. I found it somewhat fragmented because of the number of characters brought in from her other books - if you didn't remember (or hadn't read) those , it was somewhat difficult to follow.
