The Copper Beech Summary

The Copper Beech by Maeve Binchy

'Her storytelling ability is second to none' Mail on Sunday

An old copper beech overlooks a school, and witnesses all the hopes and loves, dreams and ambitions of the children who grew up there...

Shancarrig School stands in the shade of a glorious old copper beech whose colours tell the passing of the seasons and the years: a tree that has watched over many lives.

The school mistress keeps a careful eye on the children, each of whom have their own hopes, dreams and ambitions for the future. As the children grow up, and become parents themselves, their stories are entwined in this gloriously nostalgic novel from the No.1 bestselling author.
