I don’t know what to do with you. You hurt me…
And I’m sorry if I hurt you.
Summary of The Glass Lake from Maeve Binchy website:
To the outsider Kit McMahon, growing up in the lakeside village of Lough Glass, leads a charmed life. She is the loved daughter of Martin McMahon, the kindly local pharmacist, and Helen, his beautiful wife. She has a little brother Emmet, a best friend Clio, and a host of other friends.
But all is not as it seems. Kit worries about her mother. Helen McMahon does not fit in with the people and the ways of Lough Glass. She wanders alone by the lake night after night – until the dark windy night when she disappears and only the lake knows the real reason.
Even though she leaves Lough Glass, Kit is constantly drawn back to the small town on the side of the lake with all the people who live there – Sister Madeleine the hermit, who lives alone in her little cottage helping or possibly creating the problems of those who visit her; Doctor Kelly, whose sister-in-law Maura has always had hopes of the widower Martin McMahon; Philip O’Brien, the young son of the very rundown Central Hotel, who has loved Kit since childhood; Stevie Sullivan who runs the garage and rules the affections of every woman for miles around; Emmet, Kit’s younger brother, who conquers his speech impediment but not all his worries. And there’s the love-hate relationship with Clio Kelly who has always been jealous of Kit.
The Glass Lake is the story of how Kit grows up in a community without the mother she has loved and so staunchly defended, determined to carry out her mother’s last wishes that she should make something of her life, and take control of her own fortune. A story of how faith and courage can be rewarded.
Most endearing. Made me feel as if I’m a part of the book. As if I’m one of the characters. Could happen in real life, or shall I say it already did.
I love Binchy’s way of writing. Well, what I could say was, at first, you have to grasp every character in the book, but once you started…you can never put down a Binchy…you’ll wonder what the next thing will happen to the story. You will feel as if you were in a pensive (check out Harry Potter for the meaning!), as if you were prying with lives of every character. That’s the way I want to put it…who cares?!
I’ll read next the Quentins…
