Echoes 1985 is Maeve Binchy s second full novel I appreciated the breadth of watching the protagonist grow up enough for four stars Authors must never mislead readers with otherworldly themes The legend of an echo cave was the premise that interested me which amounted to nothing However readers will fall in love with the scholar Clare She rises above finances a jealous sister and a judgemental hometown Castlebay Her parents owned a grocery shop that was only afloat in tourist season She befriended her schoolteacher Angela whose brother Sean was a priest revered by their Mother and catholic townClare s potential and drive to go to Dublin university and be a career woman were clear in elementary school Most of this novel is about watching Angela guide her on the route that she too succeeded at The only avenue was to win a high school and then a university scholarship and the process was gratifying to see I loved Maeve s trademark touch Clare doing her part by encouraging her lazy friend Josie to educate herself above her own bitchy sisters I love the possibility of people regarding us highly through self made successes Maeve built humour around her hard working ladies At Josie s family s hotel she and Clare became tennis pros by practicing every morning to the disbelief of her whining sisters of leisure Clare tricked her parents into insisting that she study for examsI wish Clare had remained single Momentum went downhill after dating David It was disappointing that Sean did not rid Angela of his secret in Castlebay but I understand that disapproval would not have ceased there in the 1960s The ending abruptly became a thriller about a stalker which was unsuited to the story s goal Nonetheless Echoes is a sympathetic memorable viewpoint of fickle town life

In Echoes Binchy proves that she truly is a master storyteller but blistering sentimentality and her penchant for verbosity turn some sections of the novel into a test of staminaThe story revolves around Clare O Brien and David Power the offspring of two vastly different families in the seaside town of Castlebay in the 1950s The O Briens run the local shop they re working class and Clare is only able to further her education by being gifted and winning scholarships The Powers are to the manor born David is off at boarding school for the early parts of the novel but eventually follows in his father s footsteps by studying medicine You can already guess where this is going yes this is Maeve Binchy s Romeo and Juliet Of course the plot involving Clare and David is actually only one storyline in this vast 737 page novel which spans the entirety of the 50s and the early 60s in Castlebay Binchy is at her absolute best when she is juggling several plots Where many authors struggle to tie everything together Binchy has an almost Dickensian talent of making everything connect and tie up naturally However where in other novels Binchy is fully able to fill her usual 700 page count with ease in Echoes it seems that for every page of plot there was an accompanying page of filler It also does not help that I found this novel to be uncharacteristically sentimental for Binchy She always writes stories of love and marriage but she usually balances that out with some genuinely moving and sometimes shocking content Who can forget the abortion in Light A Penny Candle for example Binchy teases us in the prologue of Echoes by telling us about the body of a dead man floating in the sea off the cliffs of Castlebay but she does not return to this ghastly scene until the very end of the novel 700 pages later Meanwhile you ve got to deal with the just about bareable Clare and the posh daddy s boy David I feel that I ve talked about the length of this novel uite a lot in this review but honestly that is my biggest criticism There is absolutely no need for this book to be as long as it is Binchy writes big books but this isn t a big story I often found myself getting bored and realising that I had 400 or pages left It is unfortunate Echoes is a vast and well written novel There are many characters in here that would be considered classic Binchy and it is often very funny However tweeness and boredom set in after the first couple hundred pages and never really leave Overall it s a fine novel that displays Binchy s wit but the editor should hang their head in shame
