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.

Cathy Kelly

About the Author


Novelist Cathy Kelly was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, brought up in Dublin and started her working life as a journalist in an Irish national newspaper. She worked as both a news and feature reporter, and worked as the paper’s film critic for five years, as well as being the agony aunt for seven years.

Her first book, Woman To Woman, was published in 1997 and was an instant bestseller, spending eight weeks at number one on the Irish bestseller charts. Her subsequent novels have been number ones all around the world and are published in many different languages.

She’s just finished her eleventh novel, Once in a Lifetime, which was published in 2009. Cathy lives in Wicklow in Ireland with her partner, John, and their twin sons, Murray and Dylan.

In 2005, she was appointed as a UNICEF Ireland Ambassador. She’s since visited Mozambique and Rwanda as part of her work with UNICEF. Global Parenting – caring for children orphaned or affected by HIV/AIDS – is the main focus of her work with UNICEF.

In her novel, ‘Past Secrets’, Cathy highlighted the issue of HIV/AIDS and UNICEF’s work on the issue by including the following in the book’s afterword:

‘Every minutes of every day, a child under the age of 15 dies of an AIDS –related illness. If this book took you four days to read, 5,760 children will have died from AIDS during this time. Please support UNICEF’s ‘Unite For Children, Unite Against AIDS’ campaign. You can help UNICEF help millions of children who are missing their childhoods because of HIV/AIDS.’
