Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

I particularly like the two-sided style Maeve uses in this book, I always love to hear both sides of a story and this style gives us an insight into two characters who are close in one way or another. Are any of her other books written similarly?

Yes, I think all of her books that I have read tell the same story from different viewpoints. Then, everyone is tied together into the town. Quite a web she weaves! What I am trying to recall is if she had actual chapters for different characters in any of her previous books like she does in Whitehorn Woods. It is not particularly important because the overall effect is essentially the same.

Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

Re: Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy

As Maeve Binchy's April Book Club discussion has now officially opened for posts, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread to new messages -- but please be sure to join us in the Whitethorn Woods Book Club to meet Maeve, and talk with her about her acclaimed new novel. See you there!
