When Edward Bull agreed to direct the amateur production of Death by Dying, he thought it would take his mind off his wife's recent affair. He was soon to discover, however, that all the real drama was taking place off-stage ...

The Cast
Maria, trapped in a loveless marriage to an older man, makes an appalling discovery. If pushed, she knows she will do whatever it takes to protect her vulnerable son, Pat. But will she find the strength to do the one thing that would save them both?

Her sister Ellen, scarred after a tragic motorbike accident, seeks comfort where she can find it. Will she finally come to terms with what happened . . . and, perhaps, open her heart to love again?

Handsome, charming Robert glides through life. When Caroline threatens to take his sons away from him, however, he realises that everything he ever wanted was right under his nose. But is it too late?

And then there's colourful Theo, gentle Harry and independent Judith, each with their own stories ...

As the weeks pass, the cast members of Death by Dying are brought together and their lives intertwine. And, as opening night draws near, they learn that in life there's no such thing as a dress rehearsal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Her best book so far. Repeatedly and deservedly likened to Maeve Binchy, she is a master of her craft and a gifted storyteller. She has outdone herself with a skilful plot, memorable characters and the ability to leave the reader wanting more. The cleverly written plot-within-a-plot gives an interesting twist to this absorbing book. If you are a Binchy fan, I would highly recommend you get to know Meaney too. * Irish Independent *
'The Last Week of May is a highly engaging and heartwarming tale populated with warm and loveable characters. Roisin Meaney's gentle storytelling is reminiscent of that of Maeve Binchy. I truly adored the book and devoured it within a few short hours.' * Melissa Hill *
'Keenly observed and beautifully told. Lots of writers are compared to Binchy but Meaney really is ... Buy it now and put it in the beach bag.' * Irish Independent Review *
'With writing reminiscent of Maeve Binchy's, Meaney is carving out a niche for herself in this crowded market.' * Irish Examiner *

“Amateur Dramatics”

3.5 Stars

Somehow this book just all felt a little confused and, in places, plain old confusing. There is a varied cast of characters that we are introduced to and the conceit is that they are all drawn together... More
