Maeve Binchy was an Irish writer who wrote fictional works about small-town Irish life; she was also a columnist for the "Irish Times." Binchy finished her last novel "A Week in Winter" just days before she died. After Binchy's death, her husband, Gordon Snell, decided that "A Week in Winter" should still be published for the sake of his wife's devoted fans.
