It was the quiet ones you had to watch. That's where the real passion was lurking. They came together at Mountainview College, a down-at-the-heels secondary school on the seamy side of Dublin, to take a course in Italian. It was Latin teacher Aidan Dunne's last chance to revive a failing marriage and a dead-end career. But Aidan's dream was headed for disaster until the mysterious Signora appeared, transforming a shared passion for Italy into a life-altering adventure for them all ... bank clerk Bill and his dizzy fiancé Lizzie: a couple headed for trouble ... Kathy, a hardworking innocent propelled into adulthood in a shocking moment of truth ... Connie, the gorgeous rich lady with a scandal ready to explode ... glowering Lou, who joined the class as a cover for crime. And Signora, whose passionate past remained a secret as she changed all their lives forever.

Another good book. I am rereading her books and enjoying them just as much the second time around.

"Dublin teacher Aidan Dunne has been asked to build a programme of adult education classes at his school. He is delighted when fellow Dubliner Nora O'Donoghue (Signora), who has spent over twenty years in Sicily, offers to teach a class on the language and culture of Italy. In fine Maeve Binchy tradition, the multiple characters in Evening Class alternate viewpoints, come together in unexpected fashion, and eventually reach happy endings - but not before overcoming a few obstacles."

One of my favorite Binchy novels. I love how the lives of these individuals begin to intertwine. It makes me think about all of my personal interactions with the people in my own life and the impact every action has on the world around me.

Possibly my favourite book. The characters are so easy to love (or hate, if that's what Maeve wants us to do) and you feel fantastic after reading the last page.
