    Book details

A group of people, all looking for something more in their lives, and all they have in common is their Italian evening class...

The Italian evening class at Mountainview School is like hundreds of others starting up all over the city. But this class has its own special quality - as the focus for the varied hopes and dreams of teacher and pupils alike.

Aidan Dunne needs his new evening class project to succeed almost as much as his pupils do. They too are looking for something more: Bill to find a way to keep spendthrift Lizzie at his side, and Fran to make sure that young Kathy finds her way out from behind the kitchen sink.

The key to their success lies with the Signora. Her passion has drawn her from Ireland to Italy and back home again with a burning desire to share her love of all things Italian - and a secret hidden in her heart...

It's the perfect gift: Laughter, the best medicine! From beloved author Maeve Binchy, who has captured the hearts of millions with her spectacular national bestsellers, including Circle of Friends and Tara Road. In Evening Class, she applies her signature warmth, wit and understanding to something new--a wickedly funny book for anyone who's checked into the hospital, headed for an operation or convalesced at home. Maeve Binchy can always be counted on to spin an involving tale about ordinary people that brings out the extraordinary in everyone. Here, she zooms in on the working-class of Dublin. Schoolteacher Aidan Dunne organises an evening class in Italian with the help of Nora O'Donoghue, an Irishwoman returning home after 26 years in Sicily. When the somewhat squashed-by-life denizens of the surrounding neighbourhood take the unexpected step of enrolling in the class, they find their lives transformed.

    Lovely story. Read it before, but it was well worth reading again.

    Not exactly high brow but a fairly good, if predictable story. Rather a sudden ending.

    A friend recommended this book as I am due to travel to Italy soon. What a delight, again I fell in love with the characters and the place. Such an easy read and thoroughly entertaining. It really got me ready for my upcoming holiday.

    Bought this book because I'd read it years ago as a library book. Glad I did it lost nothing from a second read.

    A very poor quality, font so small it is almost impossible to read! The book is another edition as it is not as it appears in this picture!
