Light a Penny Candle is a Novel which was written by Maeve Binchy, a prolific Irish author who has written a great many wonderful novels. Binchy is a master of making the people and situations feel real, making it extremely easy to sympathize with her characters. Her style is a unique one which keeps the reader spellbound throughout the prose. I had been meaning to read it for quite some time, but I just never got around to.
