Video: Maeve Binchy Discusses Minding Frankie

Maeve Binchy’s Minding Frankie is the story of a motherless girl collectively raised by a close-knit Dublin community. When Noel learns that his terminally ill former flame is pregnant with his child, he reluctantly agrees to take care of the baby girl—but as a single father battling demons of his own, Noel can’t do it alone.

In the following video interview with Maeve, she discusses the book’s colorful characters (including Emily, Noel’s American cousin) and reveals what she likes most about Minding Frankie.
