Light tanning to the page block, and some tanning internally. Not dedicated, signed 'kind wishes', former owners name neatly to ffep, no other marks or inscriptions noted.
As occasion to celebrate, when Desmond and Deirdre Doyle must gather family and friends around them in remembrance of the twenty-five years of marriage they've shared. A moment of reckoning as an uneasy couple is forced to face a hapless daughter still struggling to become a nun... a son who prefers the bleak family farm in Ireland to London... the once best man, now Desmond's boss... Deirdre's bridesmaid, now a successful career woman... and their priest with his guilty secret. A time of transformation for their eldest daughter, Anna. For only Anna can confront their tarnished lives and find a truth to draw them into a circle of love that might nourish, protect, and finally heal them all.
"A rousing good story.... Laughter and tears: it's what Binchy does best." -- "San Francisco Chronicle."
