Item description for Deeply Regretted Byà (Arlen Classic Literature) by Maeve Binchy...
Deeply Regretted By . . . , Maeve Binchy's classic television play, is a moving and powerful account of a tragedy affecting a woman in London who discovers, on the death of her "husband," that their married life was a lie. The play reflects the sociopolitical realities of Irish men marrying and starting families both at home and abroad, principally after they were forced to emigrate for work. Presenting a brave and revealing account of a hidden layer of Irish society, Maeve Binchy first brought the subject to the surface in her Irish Times story, "Death of Kilburn," also included in this volume.

Binchy's Play a Classic Jul 5, 2007
I don't know when I have read a play last..probably in high school. Deeply Regreted is a true Maeve Binchy classic. Binchy is a master of taking glimpses of daily life and immersing the reader. If you are a Binchy fan, please give this a read. You will not "deeply regret" it.
