September Letters

September Letters The winner of the September Letters Competition as part of ECHOES is Martha Higgins.  Martha is originally from Sligo and now lives in Raheny in Dublin.  She has always been an avid reader and one of her daughters claims that if she had to choose between buying food or books, books would win!


In the top three were: Martha writing on Echoes; Patricia Berry (Copper Beech) and Rhian J Martin (Circle of Friends), both writing from the US.


The top three will be published on the official Maeve website and the Daily Mail will print a selection of them on Friday 15th September.


Maeve Binchy’s ‘The September Letters’ was published as an ebook Vintage Short by Penguin Random House in May 2016 in the United States. In the short story, Maeve once again brings us into the lives of ordinary people where chance meetings have the potential to change lives.
