Maeve Binchy, Author Extraordinaire

Posted on August 1, 2012 at 6:38 PM
The untimely death of Maeve Binchy, yesterday, July 31, 2012, at the age of 72 was indeed a shock! "Light A Penny Candle" was her first published book and the first one she authored that I read. Much of the book is centered around alcoholism and the devastation it creates with the family and friends. I felt like she could see into my life as I experienced being a co-alcoholic to my alcoholic husband before we both recovered. She hit the "nail on the head" as she zeroed in on the behaviors of those with the disease of alcoholism. Maeve was an inspiration to me. She was able to communicate in a way that was felt in the hearts of her readers. She knew her subjects, her people and how to reach them with her writing. The information she shared in "The Maeve Binchy Writers' Club" was so helpful to me in my authorship. I will miss knowing that "she is there" to admire and from whom to learn and enjoy. What a wonderful contributor to humanity she was! She will always be remembered, especially by her women followers.

Nice review at all! Really, alcohol is very dangerous for our health. My elder sister also died for alcoholism. Everyone should stay out of this. Thanks! :)

Dear Judith, I appreciate your comment and am glad you enjoyed my review. I assume you are a fan of Maeve Binchey also. Yes, I agree with you that alcoholism takes its toll on countless people. It is "cunning, baffling and powerful". I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. I sympathize with your situation. Feeling helpless to change the outcome of the life of someone we love who is addicted can be very depressing to family and friends. That is why I sought information about the disease and a support group to put myself on the right track to change what I could which was only me....And as I changed myself-attitudes and actions-I could see positive changes in my husband and family. The reason I wrote the book "It's Okay To Be Dumbfounded, Just Don't Stay That Way!" From Co-Addiction, Addiction to Recovery--Doing whatever it takes to live a healthy life free from addiction is that I believe that sharing my life as a co-dependent and the road I took to recovery could help other co's like me learn that they are not alone, and that there is legitimate help out there. There can be a positive outcome to the problem. I invite you to take a look at the contents of my book on my home page by clicking on the book cover as well as reading more of my blogs about the disease of co-addiction, addiction and recovery. Best Regards, Addie Lee
