The heart-warming new novel from the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of BETWEEN SISTERS.
Number One bestseller Cathy Kelly returns with a sparkling tale of family, friends, and marriages in trouble, told with her trademark Irish wit, warmth and wisdom.
It's a very special birthday party, a chance to get family and friends together and raise a glass in celebration. And no one throws a party like the Brannigans.
For Bess, hosting the lavish weekend at Lisowen Castle to celebrate her new husband's birthday is a chance to show the world how far they've come. Yes, Ed may once have been the poor boy from the village, but look at him now. But who knew joining a new family could be so difficult?
For Ed's daughter Jojo, having a new stepmother was never going to be easy, especially when the memory of your mother is trampled at every opportunity. And Jojo's dream of a family of her own just seems to get further away.
For Cari, a family get-together is another chance for everyone to remember how things went wrong at her wedding. Three years on, she still hasn't dared trust a man since.
And then there's Faenia, who last saw Lisowen and Ireland nearly forty years ago. Is it finally time for the runaway to come home?
It's going to be quite a party.
Wise, warm, compassionate and full of characters I loved ... it's like having a great gossip with your best friends
