Summary:

“[Maeve] Binchy makes you laugh, cry, and care. Her warmth and sympathy render the daily struggles of ordinary people heroic and turn storytelling into art.” –San Francisco Chronicle

With the insight, humor, and compassion we have come to expect from her, Maeve Binchy tells a story of family, friends, patients, and staff who are part of a heart clinic in a community caught between the old and the new Ireland.

Dr. Clara Casey has been offered the thankless job of establishing the underfunded clinic and agrees to take it on for a year. She has plenty on her plate already–two difficult adult daughters and the unwanted attentions of her ex-husband–but she assembles a wonderfully diverse staff devoted to helping their demanding, often difficult patients.

Before long the clinic is established as an essential part of the community, and Clara must decide whether or not to leave a place where lives are saved, courage is rewarded, and humor and optimism triumph over greed and self-pity. Heart and Soul is Maeve Binchy at her storytelling best.

    Heart & Soul by Maeve Binchey was a delight! It's not available from the Library on audio, so I was thrilled to find it on Audiobooks.com ! I'm a novice, and this was my FIRST audio book on my new iPad mini....it will not be my last! --Bev

    I love this author but was so disappointed with this version. The narrator chose to do the Polish character in such a distracting "accent" that the whole experience was destroyed for me. This is the first time in years and years that I have ever returned a book unfinished. I was so disappointed. An obviously fake accept is not distracting--among other things that could be said.
