Publishers Orion said sales of the book, released posthumously last month, are up almost 50pc on the late novelist's second-last title, 'Minding Frankie'.

Spokeswoman Louise Page said: "Sales of 'A Week In Winter' are 47pc up on Maeve's last novel published in 2010, and Orion had their biggest ever first week sales at Amazon for a novel by her."

Binchy, who died last July, had a long and successful career that saw her books translated into 30 languages with sales topping 40 million worldwide.

'A Week In Winter' is set in a country house hotel on the west coast of Ireland and tells the stories of its staff and guests.
