Every table at Quentins Restaurant has a thousand stories to tell: tales of love, betrayal and revenge. Ella Brady wants to make a documentary about the renowned Dublin restaurant that has captured the spirit of a generation and a city in the years it has been open.

In Maeve Binchy's magical QUENTINS you will meet new friends and old: the twins from SCARLET FEATHER, the Signora from EVENING CLASS, Ria from TARA ROAD - and a host of fresh faces. There is Monica, the ever-cheerful Australian waitress, and Blouse Brennan, whose simplicity disguises a sharp mind and a heart of gold. Presiding over Quentins are Patrick and Brenda Brennan, who have made the restaurant such a legend. But even they have a story and a sadness which is hidden from the public gaze. As Ella uncovers more of what has gone on, she wonders about the wisdom of bringing it to the screen. Should the restaurant keep its secrets?

As with all her books, utterly forgettable when you are done but hard to put down when you are reading it. She is a good storyteller, but in the end her stories are just pulp fiction with little to take away.

Typical Binchy writing. I found the lead- Ella a particularly stupid character, though. It was slow to start and then picked up. Some characters from other books make appearances.

Very readable,Ive enjoyed all of her books read so far, They are not ,as I was told, just for middle aged women.
