    I too have been had. From now on I will check the length of the book before buying. I feel cheated.
  • Uh, $9.99? For this?

    Okay, my bad, as when I look at I now, I see the description says that it is a short story. Not even a collection of short stories. But really? I read this in half an hour. I thought I was getting a novel. Totally sucked. I think the ebook sample is half the story. Go see a $10 movie for 2 hours instead and get a better entertainment value. Ms. Binchy should be ashamed for this scamming of true fans.
  • Excellent, but too pricey for the length

    Binchy is an amazing story teller and the novella does not disappoint. However, I felt like $10 was too much to pay for a story of this length. It would have been more aptly priced at around $4.99...

    Good story but very disappointed that I paid $9.99 for such a short story; bit of a rip-off really.
  • Fast read

    Nice story, but only 72 pages for your money.
