Another unforgettable novel from the bestselling author of Light a Penny Candle and Circle of Friends.

Desmond and Deirdre Doyle will have been married for twenty-five years in October. It falls to the Doyles' eldest daughter, Anna, to decide how best to commemorate her parents' Silver Wedding. No use asking her sister Helen, living in her London convent, or her brother Brendan, who has chosen another form of exile on a bleak farm in the West of Ireland.

But it is unthinkable not to have a party, even though for the Doyles, family occasions are more difficult than for most. For each of them is keeping up a front, nursing a secret wound, or smarting over a hidden betrayal. And as the day draws nearer, so the tension mounts, until finally the guests gather at the party itself...

Not her very best as there were no truly likeable characters. They were all interesting, just all very damaged people.

I thought I had read all of the Binchy books but somehow had missed this one! Glad I found it as it was a good read as are all of her stories. At times it seems a bit disjointed with many characters and story lines to follow but it all comes together in the end!

This was the very first Binchy book I ever read and it started me on a path to read all her books. Having arranged a Silver anniversary some of the stories rang true.
