Circle of Friendsby Maeve Binchy
Synopses & Reviews
It began with Benny Hogan and Eve Malone, growing up, inseparable, in the village of Knockglen. Benny--the only child, yearning to break free from her adoring parents...Eve--the orphaned offspring of a convent handyman and a rebellious blueblood, abandoned by her mother's wealthy family to be raised by nuns. Eve and Benny--they knew the sins and secrets behind every villager's lace curtains...except their own.
It widened at Dublin, at the university where Benny and Eve met beautiful Nan Mahlon and Jack Foley, a doctor's handsome son. But heartbreak and betrayal would bring the worlds of Knockglen and Dublin into explosive collision. Long-hidden lies would emerge to test the meaning of love and the strength of ties held within the fragile gold bands of a... Circle Of Friends.
Benny and her best friend Eve have grown up in Knockglen, a sleepy small town. When they are old enough, their one thought is to get to Dublin, to university and freedom. But it is in Knockglen that Benny and Eve's new friends will find passion, tragedy and the independence they yearn for.
