I enjoyed reading about my favourite authors life. It sure was colourful. But some parts of the book were quite boring.

Parts of this book seemed more like reviews of Binchy's books and less about her life. Overall though, I enjoyed learning more about the person behind the wonderful stories I've enjoyed reading over the years.
