They come to the evening class, but they learn far more than they ever bargained for, and by the time they are ready to set off on the promised trip to Italy at the end of the year, everyone’s destiny has changed utterly.
The Evening Class is a classic Maeve Binchy novel that explores the lives, loves, friendships and drama that encompasses a group of Irish men and women who attend an Italian evening class together. The setting for this uplifting story of self-discovery, now available on CD audiobook or as an MP3 downloadable audiobook, is Mountainview School in Dublin. Here, Binchy draws us into the lives of those attending the classes held by the canny Nora O’Donoghue, who likes to be called “Signora”.
We are welcomed into a different person’s narrative with each chapter throughout the fascinating Evening Class, as the students learn more over the course of a year than just how to speak Italian! The eager group gets more than they ever bargained for, as their lives begin to intertwine with each other and, in typical Binchy style, love and deceit abounds. The hopes and dreams of everyone are explored until the time to take a trip to Italy arrives when the entire groups’ lives have completely changed. But have they all changed for the better?
The story of wealth, power, love and poverty is narrated by Kate Binchy in this collection of audiobooks on CD and MP3, who ensures that her listeners are as captivated as Maeve Binchy’s readers are!
