Tara Road - Maeve Binchy

This was my first Maeve. was supposedly set in the '90s, but it felt more like the '50s. It's mainly about an irish girl who falls in love and gets married to a go-getter. It has a few too many characters, there's the colleagues and the neighbours and the mum and the sister and the kids and their friends, and then the sam for the american broad.
when it ended the characters were in a much better headspace, but there were still a few details i wanted to find out...but it was a pretty big book, so i guess maeve was over it by that stage.
i don't think i laughed at all - her son was amusing. defo didn't cry - but did get shocked at one point - the other million pages were pretty predictable.
