The Lilac Bus Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Lilac Bus

A tough one to review, yet still a good Binchy read. Each chapter examines the life of a "ticket holder" on the Lilac Bus. It gives the reader a look into each person's life and a chance to see the interaction of the other members on the bus. Somewhat similar to the writing in The Evening Class by Binchy.
**Bonus** At the back of the book is 4 short stories by Ms. Binchy. Dinner in Donnybrook was wonderful, and for a short story, one of my new favorites.
