Maeve Binchy has set her fifth novel in contemporary Ireland, in the little midland parish village of Shancarrig. There, a magnificent copper beech tree shades the school yard, its trunk bearing the names of dozens of Shancarrig school children. Each has a story that reveals the passions and dark secrets behind seemingly ordinary lives.

"The Copper Beech is a real pleasure to read. However, listening to Barbara Caruso's narration of it is an even greater pleasure. Caruso has an outstanding ability to convey the subtle differences between the rich array of characters. Men, women, kids and clergy are all enhanced by Caruso's delivery. The story, set in contemporary Ireland stems from a copper beech tree which overlooks the village school. The tree interconnects the many characters of the saga. Caruso's reading style weaves the story together so subtly that the listener feels at one with the storyteller. S.G.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
