Minding Frankie is a family love story, full of Maeve Binchy’s trademark wisdom, warmth and humour. Noel Lynch is struggling with an alcohol addiction, when he gets a call from Stella, a girlfriend with whom he shared a drunken weekend. Stella is having Noel’s child; she is also dying from cancer. Noel must raise their daughter, Frankie.
Social worker, Moira Tierney, has other ideas, and is prepared to do battle for custody of the child. In order to prevail, Noel must prove that he can fill a woman’s shoes, break all the stereotypes, and become the best mother than he can be.
Along the way, he discovers that it takes a village to rear a child, or at least a street.
