By the school house at Shancarrig stands a copper beech, its bark scarred with the names and dreams of the pupils who have grown up under its branches. This tree is the gateway to Maeve Binchy's marvellous portrait of a small Irish town whose untroubled surface conceals the passions, rivalries, friendships, ambitions and jealousies beneath. With warmth and humour Maeve Binchy uncovers the secrets hidden in each of her characters' lives and shows that there are extraordinary stories to be found everywhere - in only you know where to look and how to listen.

On 10 CD's. Eight children once carved their names on the trunk of the great copper beech which shaded the schoolhouse in Shancarrig. Now those children are grown. For each one, Shancarrig holds special memories - some too private ever to be told. From Ryan's Hotel to Barna Woods where the gypsies came each year, from Nellie Dunn's sweet shop to Father Gunn's church, the tenor of life in this small Irish town is placid, uneventful - some would say dull...But peel away the layers and all sorts of unexpected things come to light.Product Description:
In the Irish town of Schancarrig, the young people carve their initials--and those of their loves-into the copper beech tree in front of the schoolhouse. But not even Father Gunn, the parish priest, who knows most of what goes on behind Shancarrig's closed doors, or Dr. Jims, the village doctor, who knows all the rest, realizes that not everything in the placid village is what it seems.
