Annotation:
In this latest lilting Irish tale from Maeve Binchy, a troubled priest must decide where he stands on the proposed demolition of what some believe to be a sacred shrine. Legend has it that the St. Ann's well has brought love and healing to dozens of visitors, but Fr. Brian Flynn isn't so sure. The town has been offered the chance to build a new highway, which could be beneficial to many. Unfortunately, the highway would run straight into the path of the well. Fr. Flynn goes to the well to make his own request, asking for guidance in making the right decision. When he is presented with the many rich and detailed stories of the well and the many affairs and loves and miracles it has inspired, he begins to understand the importance of the little shrine.
Author Bio
Maeve Binchy
Maeve Binchy was born in Dublin and was educated at a convent school in Killiney. She earned a history degree from University College, Dublin in 1960 and taught for several years afterwards in various girls' schools in Ireland. Her first publishing experience occurred when "The Irish Times" printed a letter she wrote home from Israel where she was teaching at a kibbutz. Submitted by her father, the letter earned her ?18 and exceeded her present weekly salary of ?16. From 1969 to 1980, she lived in London and wrote humorous columns and travel articles for "The Irish Times". She has written plays and short stories, in addition to her best-selling novels.

Praise

"Binchy goes on to deliver...a panoply of prosaic but richly drawn first-person characters." 01/08/2007
