Loved the characters all through, even the ones with spots and boils in their life values, until the end. The ending was a surprise but not in a good way. It just didn't make any sense which made it unbelievable and all the hours spent reading a waste of time.

This is one of my favorite books of all time! It covers the friendship of two very different women since childhood. Aisling(pronounced Ashleen) and is from Ireland and Elizabeth is from England and goes to live with Aisling and her family during the WWII to get away from London and the bombings, she must leave her parents and she is very shy and timid, the opposite of Aisling who is very outgoing and lively. Staying with the O'connor family does wonders for Elizabeth and she credits Aisling's mother for her care and non judgemental character and love she and her family shows her. The books covers their lives together from childhood trauma's to their love affairs, tough times, great times, births, marriages and deaths. I think all women can relate to this book if we are blessed once in our lifetime with one true best girlfriend who really understands us and us them! If I would have to complain about anything, it seems Ms. Binchy was in a rush or under a time restraint to finish this book, the ending seems very rushed and is not explained very well. But I still loved, loved it!!!

As usual, I enjoyed Maeve Binchy's book. We lost a wonderful author when she died. This book follows two women from childhood to mid adult. It was a very well written book and the characters were very well developed. All the characters in the book were delightful and meaningful to the story line. It had enough surprises in the book to really make it interesting. The book is long 819 pages on the Kindle but I don't think any of the book could have been eliminated to make it shorter. There were no lulls in the story line that I would have cut out. It was a nice easy read and I will miss the characters. It kept my interest completely through out the entire book. I would recommend this book highly.

I am reading all of Binchy's books again some of them 25 years later. I am a little more critical of characters now but the stories she tells, the way she reveals our inner selves as humans flaws., attributes and all is magnificent. By the end of the book you are so involved and invested in her characters lives. A true storyteller. We miss her.

First, I have to disclose that this is only my 2nd review for a book I’ve purchased on Amazon; I’ve notice some people get hostile responses to their reviews, so please try to remember that these are just my opinions based on my feelings after reading the book. I had a hard time deciding on my star rating. Based on the first half of the book, I would have given it 5 stars. Based on the last half, I would have given it 1 star, so I kind of averaged that. Over all, I enjoyed the story and most of the characters. Like other Binchy novels I’ve read, I become engrossed in the story and main characters. The story line was interesting and kept my attention right up until the end. What I didn’t like are the last couple of chapters. It felt like a different person wrote those, or that the publisher gave the author a 2 day deadline to finish the book and she just tried to wrap things up. Specifically, it felt to me like the main characters behaved in ways that made no sense based on their development earlier in the book. I’m trying to avoid spoilers, but one character who was very moral, kind and intelligent ended up committing a murder at the end (at least that’s my interpretation of her actions). The author did make some references to this character “gritting her teeth in rage” and being very angry at other people in some cases without feeling like she could express her rage and anger, so I guess we are supposed to assume that she just snapped, but I honestly don’t feel like the overall development of this character supported her final actions and response to those actions. And another character that was initially portrayed as kind and gentle turned into a monster at the end and I didn’t feel like this was a logical progression. It felt like the author had put a mask over these people’s real selves, and then whipped it off in the last chapter, and I didn’t enjoy the result. I also felt some of the minor characters were very inconsistently developed; they would also behave in ways later in the book that didn’t make sense based on how their characters had been developed in the beginning. I understand that this is kind of the point of a character driven novel, that the characters evolve and change over the course of the story. But here, it felt like some of them turned into completely differently people instead.

So to summarize, I guess I would definitely recommend this book to those who have read Maeve Binchy novels in the past and enjoyed them. I've recently read Heart and Soul and A Week in Winter and enjoyed those much more. But if you have never read a Binchy novel before, I would not recommend that you make this your first one.

Excellent Book!

I have read other Maeve Binchy books and enjoyed them. But Light a Penny Candle was the best one yet. Maeve Binchy writes in terrific descriptive detail and so interesting to observe the mores of the times of World War II and beyond. Eileen and her family in Ireland is portrayed so well. She makes you feel like you are there. Hated to have the book finish. Highly recommend!

I like Maeve Binchy's writing style. It was a page turner in several parts. I only gave it four stars because truthfully, the two main characters were wonderful and lovable when they were young but I did not really care for them (or even like them) as adults and in the end they were disappointing. It was still an engaging story. A lot of real life instances and choices people have to make. I still desire to read another book by this author.
