    1. *Currently reading* status update -Yeah, I'm reading a Maeve Binchy novel, what of it?! Seriously, why do I have this guilty/embarrassed feeling like the time when my mom caught me looking at the lingerie section in the Sears catalogue?*Read* review -After hearing an author's name mentioned on the radio and seeing it pop up at shops and the library, there comes a point when I bow down to the coincidences of the world that are "telling me something" and finally read something by that author.

    2. Wonderful! Wonderful! Reading this was like falling into a warm and cozy bath with great chocolate to eat. Some characters from previous books make appearances and even have greater parts in this novel. I am so glad I ordered it early from U.K. This novel centers around a heart clinic and the people who work there and the patients who go there as well for treatment. The usual blend of small mysteries and entertwined lives as only Maeve Binchy could do.This was definitely worth the wait!Once aga [...]

    3. Ugh this was a SLLLLOOWWWWW read. It's not my favorite Binchy book by any stretch of the imagination. I know some of the characters have been recycled from other books, but I can't remember which books, so that's a little frustrating. I wish there was a cheat sheet somewhere to jog my memory about who they are.

    4. I really enjoyed this book -I couldn't wait to to listen to it and I was so sorry when it was finished.Binchy tends to write her books as a kind of series of short stories that all link together.It's a compelling family drama with tears,tantrums and happy endings.Pure comfort reading. I love that all her books link together with overlapping characters and so many topics are covered - these are everyday people and she makes you love them - even the awful people!On the negative side (which I can i [...]

    5. U ovom romanu pratimo dešavanja u maloj klinici za bolesti srca u Irskoj. Kao i u romanu Kako smo čuvali Frenki, i u ovom su likovi mali ljudi od kojih zaista možemo naučiti mnogo. Posebno mi je bilo drago kada su se spomenuli neki likovi iz navedenog romana - bilo je lijepo ponovo se susresti sa njima :) Ovaj roman je idealan za čitanje navečer, pod dekicom uz neki dobar čaj :) u mislima ćete bar na trenutak otići u divnu Irsku i biti okruženi super likovima.

    6. I love Maeve Binchy and this is another charming character driven story. I love the way she brings back characters from previous novels for cameo appearances, like an old friend stopping by to say hello. If you're looking for a gentle and enjoyable read this is a great choice.

    7. Set in the green hills of Ireland, Heart and Soul is an amazing story that never gets boring, always bringing up something totally unexpected.

    8. This book had a strong start, but disappointed after the first 100 pages. The huge amount of characters and the stereotype of the Polish immigrant became tiresome. I've enjoyed several other books by this author, but found it hard to finish.

    9. So many times I was tempted to stop reading this book. Usually I give a book 100 pages, I finished it, but even at page 308, I truely contemplated giving it the unfinished flick. The only reason I finished it, in the end, was I had nothing else I wanted to start reading, before our book club met again this week. I am glad that this wasn't my choice to read. I found Heart and Soul was like reading a soapie. The most climatic event was a girl going home to her mother. Nothing really happens, and i [...]

    10. I have to quit reading these old lady romances! I knew I couldn't read anymore when the guy was staring at the girl's "little ringlet" next to her ear--- she had just gone to the salon?!?? What nurse goes to the salon in the middle of the day and gets an updo? With ringlets? No more mauve binchy for me.

    11. Audio book read by Sile Bermingham.This is a story of family, friends, patients and staff whose lives intersect at a heart clinic in Dublin. Dr Clara Casey has taken on the job of director of this underfunded but much needed clinic. She agrees to a one-year contract because she has plenty of other issues in her personal life – two adult daughters with whom she has a difficult relationship, and an ex-husband who is trying to worm his way back into her good graces. The staff she assembles is ecl [...]

    12. I would not have picked this book to read on my own. It was the book choice for my Ladies' Book Group. I thought the book, about a woman who gets a position heading a heart clinic in Dublin, was much too saccharine. Clara, the main, well mostly main character, since there are myriad characters, comes into the clinic and has everything quickly fall into place for her. She quickly finds great, friendly, efficient (that is, perfect)staff within a couple of days. They all have their own side stories [...]

    13. Maeve Binchy escreveu um dos meus livros preferidos, mas este, definitivamente, não me seduziuMuitas coincidências, tudo parecia encaixar-se bem de mais, como se houvesse sempre uma solução a aguardar cada problema e demasiadas personagens a serem exploradas o que me causou uma certa confusão e me fez perder o interesse pelo desenrolar da história.

    14. One of my all-time favorite authors, Maeve Binchey, does it again with a novel that lets me completely escape into someone else's life for a while. I've been reading Binchey for a long time now, and I love what her novels have evolved to. She used to write the huge, coming-of-age novels. I loved them. And while they always ended well, with closure, I always wonder what happened to these characters I had grown to love so much. I don't have enough curiosity about them to wish for a sequel, rather [...]

    15. Maeve Binchy is a good story teller. She's always down to earth and her people seem real. I like this group of people from the heart clinic. Good stories but a bit draggy in places. It's 3.5 for me. Closer to 3 than 4.

    16. I really loved my first Maeve Binchy book and still recommend it to a lot of my friends, so understandably, I had high hopes for this book and to my surprise, it seemed to me it was written by a completely different author. At times I caught myself wondering if maybe this wasn't one of those books that have a secret ghost writer imitating the style of the original author, and at times I wondered if it wasn't a problem with the translator, maybe he had taken some liberties and ended up deconstruc [...]

    17. Loved this absorbing multi faceted family drama. There are auspicious meetings, where Ania meets Clare and is offered work, Clare is opening a new facility for heart patients, looking for staff, summoning resources and against the odds manages to start her clinic.Declan successfully applies for work at the clinic and is attracted to a fellow employee, Fiona. His parents are so proud of him, and he worries about their expectations.All of the characters have hidden depths, there is a back history [...]

    18. A lovely book, I greatly enjoyed reading about the family relationships, the way that the Polish and Irish communities have so many commonalities. So many unpromising relationships that worked so well, Declan and Fiona, for example. Dysfunctional families that proved to be anything but with Clare´s Daughters who proved to be well rounded individuals.7The work offered to Ania from Poland that proved to be the making of her, and her past difficulties that made her a stronger person ultimately.I l [...]

    19. The story itself was fine, though they kept introducing new characters into the middle of the book.It's fine feel good story taking place in Dublin. I listened the an audiobook of this and found the narrators take on some of the accents off putting including the twins sounding like robots. But overall a fine read.

    22. I am going to be spending quite a bit of time this year in rereading some old favourites and this is one of them.Heart and Soul deals with a wonderful cast of characters that are connected to a new heart clinic in Dublin. As always with Maeve Binchy, it is a journey of self discovery that we are presented with and I just don't have enough superlatives to say how heart warming the writing is.It's not just bring, goody-goody characters either - there is some real substance and variety to them.I am [...]

    23. I'm a great fan of Maeve Binchy but this wasn't one of my favourites. She has set her story around a Dublin heart clinic and tried to work in many characters from previous novels such as Scarlet Feather, Evening Class and Quentins; even if they just have walk-on roles, her readers will be interested to see their progress. I disliked that the main characters are extremely unprofessional in manner. Even if the setting is Dublin, a doctor in charge of a clinic does not grouse and namecall about the [...]

    24. It’s difficult to say anything negative about Maeve Binchy books. How can one fault books that are as warm and comfortable as a big fluffy blanket? True, there are some that are definitely better than others, some characters you care about more than others, but when all is said and done you always come away from reading a Binchy book appreciating the humor, compassion and Irish spirit that permeates each page.In HEART AND SOUL, Binchy utilizes an underfunded heart clinic as the focal point for [...]

    25. While this book was a slow starter, it had a nice payoff in the end.Heart and Soul centers around a Irish clinic that treats patients with heart disease, helping them to learn to live with their condition, rather than dying from it - dietician Lavender holds cooking workshops, trainer Jimmy puts them through their paces in the gym, Dr. Decklan monitoring their health, nurses Fiona and Hillary minding the patients, clerical Anya working her behind off in every way, and administrator Clara oversee [...]

    26. Each chapter is written as episodes in the lives of the characters and it all seems to link together into a relaxing if not a somewhat predictable read. If you have read previous novels by this author you will also enjoy catching up with characters you met earlier and once again visiting the restaurant Quentins, also a title of one of Maeve Binchy’s earlier novels. It doesn't matter if you are new to this author though as it stands alone easily as well.It is not a novel that I am gong to rave [...]

    27. Dr. Clara Casey takes on the role of setting up the Heart Care clinic connected with the hospital in Dublin. She doesn't want to, but agrees for one year. She hires a staff and sets up the facility. What happens next is that the staff come together to really care about one another and the patients. The patients begin to see how they can manage their heart health and lead productive lives. In short, it's not as horrible as she thought it would be. I enjoyed this one. The last couple of Binchy boo [...]

    28. My Mum handed me this book after she had read it and as a fan of past Binchey books I thought I'd give it a try. What these books always guarantee is an easy read (especially more so in her more most recent ones) but this is always not such a good thing. What I enjoyed about her older books (The Glass Lake and the The Italian Class being particular examples) was the richness in family and friend relationships and the ramifications which they had over future generations. Although Heart and Soul w [...]

    29. My wifi has been acting up, so this is my third try at this.A gentle woman's read. Binchy's stories always turn out well, like a fairy tale, which I have a sneaking fondness for. This one is about the formation and first year of a Heart Clinic, formed to help people who have had heart attacks get follow up care in a non hospital setting. Most of the characters are sympathetic types. Even the bad ones come to sort of a resolution in the end. There's a women who is the head of the clinic; a hospit [...]

    30. Well, isn’t this just an obnoxiously optimistic book? Just about everyone is good natured to a fault, only doing anything wrong due to their overwhelming need to be a good person blinding them from the possible ramifications of their actions. Seriouslyis reads like it was written by someone with a delusional idea of quaint, Irish life. Add to that the fact that the story lines of different characters fade in and out in a rather discombobulated fashion, completely failing to meld together into [...]
