What Would You Recommend? - Maeve Binchy

 This is a question I get asked all the time working in the bookstore: "What would you recommend for somebody who loved "_________"? (fill in the blank)" Usually I can come up with something, but that something can be a bit of a wild guess if it's not a book or genre I normally read. This is where you helpful people come in. If you have a suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

This week I'm asking about another author where I don't even have any guesses to recommend: Maeve Binchy. She's got a lot of books out, and a large number of devoted readers. But, when she doesn't have a new book out, I'm always getting asked, "what else would I like?".

So, who's similar in style? I'm not even sure what to classify Binchy's books as. I'm wondering if they're anything like series such as The Thorn Birds however. What are your opinions and suggestions?

I'd recommend Rosamund Pilcher, Luanne Rice, or Kristin Hannah. They write character driven female centered novels. Luanne Rice writes wonderfully of the New England coast.
