Book Description

2 Aug 2001

A silver wedding means a family gathering - difficult occasions at the best of times. But for the Doyles - Deidre, Desmond and their children Anna, Helen and Brendan - it will be more difficult than most.

For each of them is keeping up a front; each of them is nursing a secret wound, or smarting over a hidden betrayal. As the day draws nearer, so the tension mounts, until finally the guests gather at the silver wedding party itself...

3.0 out of 5 stars A fast Read 12 Jan 2009
This is a collection of six interlinked stories about a family preparing for the parent's silver wedding anniversary, it gives a description of some of the family and also some of the closer friends who will be attending the wedding. We have Anna the oldest daughter, she is organising the anniversary party, and worried about what can go wrong and whether her brother Brendan will show up at the party. Brendan has all but removed himself from the family as he is tired of the acting that goes on with his mother Deirdre who's always worried about what people will think. Theres also Anna and Brendan's sister Helen a very confused, accident prone and annoying character who is trying to become a nun to get away from it all. There's the parish priest who has his own secrets and other various family and friends.

This is a short book which I read in a few hours. I think if you have read the Lilac Bus and liked it you will probably like this one as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its all about us !! 18 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book must surely contain aspects of personality and family life which most of us can recognize!! The main couple have plodded along in their marriage and their children have flown the nest and have their own stories, and as always Maeve makes us become familiar with the type of person they are with her expert character analysis. Father Hurley is involved throughout as it is a catholic family, a nice twist at the end cleverly done. Brilliant !

The appeal was lifelike. The events in the book seen so real, you were caught up with the writer. It seemed a re-inactment of people's life.
