Summary

By the end of the weekend, everything will have changed. But for better or for worse? 

After 26 years of marriage Lily and Charlie separate. Lily moving on with her new fiancé Joe, and Charlie, with his new, younger, girlfriend Chloe. Even Lily and Charlie's grown-up children Polly and Thomas have come to terms with their parent's new lives. 

But when Lily's mother dies, Lily and Charlie decide to get the family together for one last weekend in the old family summer home - a weekend that just happens to be their 30th wedding anniversary. 

As the whole family gathers with their respective partners, home truths come out and secrets are divulged. By the end of the weekend, everything will have changed - but for better or for worse?

Up there with her others!

Roisin Meaney writes ‘easy reading’ at the highest standard. Her characters and their relationships leap off the page. The story lines are straightforward, but the high quality of writing means they remain compelling. This novel is no exception. Enjoy!
