Maeve Binchy brings us sons and lovers, daughters and strangers, husbands and wives in their infinite variety--powerfully compelling stories of love, loss, revelation, and reconciliation. A secretary's silent passion for her boss meets the acid test on a business trip ... A man and a woman's mutual disdain at first sight shows how deceptive appearances can be ... An insecure wife clings to the illusion of order, only to discover chaos at the hands of a house sitter who opens the wrong doors ... A pair of star-crossed travelers take each other's bags, and then learn that when you unlock a stranger's suitcase, you enter a stranger's life. In their company are many more, whose poignant, ironic, often humorous stories--unforgettable slices of life--make up The Return Journey, a spellbinding trip into the human heart.… (more)

This book was entirely short stories and all involved travel of some sort. Most of the characters seemed happier on the surface than the actually were. With the exception of the first story, they felt little pretty complete stories despite their length. I'd have liked the first story to be longer because I honestly had no idea what happened at the end. ( )

Read for a challenge (Irish author"). Sweet short stories, ranging from horehound (intense) to fudge (rich) to cotton candy (fluff), so to speak. The best ones were the ones that had a little bit of the bitter, or the not-quite-happy ending." ( )
