Three couples. One weekend. Everything is about to change...

The sparkling and spellbinding new novel from Number One bestselling author Roisin Meaney

Lily and Charlie separated after twenty-six years of marriage. Now, with their divorce due to come through in a matter of months, Lily, newly engaged to the dependable Joe, decides to get the whole family together for one last weekend at Land's End, their old summer home by the sea. Lily has to break some news to Charlie, her daughter Poll and son Thomas -- news she knows they're not going to be happy about.

But as the family makes their way to Land's End with their new partners, Lily's best laid plans are about to go awry.

As Charlie's much younger girlfriend Chloe guards her own secret, Poll seems intent on sabotaging her apparently perfect relationship, while Thomas wrestles with a decision he knows could break his family apart.

And amid the drama, they've forgotten that this weekend also just happens to be Lily and Charlie's wedding anniversary ...

Will all the couples survive the weekend intact?

MEDIA REVIEWS
The perfect example of an author at the pinnacle of her career * Meath Chronicle on The Anniversary *
The Anniversary is an addictive read with engaging, flawed characters and a unique writing flair that pulls you into the plot from the very beginning and keeps you entranced to the very end * Books of All Kinds *
Roisin Meaney has once again done herself proud and written a book that should feature on many people's reading lists for this summer ... Do yourselves a favour and buy this book. * Shaz's Book Blog *
A delightful read about relationships and the complexities associated with family life ... A cosy read for any time of the year, be it in your beach bag or sitting curled up in front of the fire. * Swirl and Thread on The Anniversary *
Praise for Roisin Meaney * : *
A thoughtful engrossing read. Warm and insightful. Roisin Meaney is a skilful storyteller * Sheila O'Flanagan on The Reunion *
Highly engaging and heartwarming ... I truly adored the book and devoured it within a few short hours * Melissa Hill *
A real treat ... [Meaney's] ability to weave stories around a seemingly random cast is simply uncanny ... [she]wraps her readers in the company and comfort of ordinary strangers * Sunday Independent *
A cracking yarn ... Meaney can excavate the core of our human failings and present it to us, mirror-like, on the page ... Which makes her utterly credible, utterly authentic, utterly irresistible * Irish Independent *
Meaney weaves wonderful feel-good tales of a consistently high standard. And that standard rises with each book she writes * Irish Examiner *
This book is like chatting with a friend over a cup of tea - full of gossip and speculation, and all the things that make life interesting * Irish Mail on Sunday *
It's easy to see why Roisin Meaney is one of Ireland's best-loved authors ... Should you spot this on a bookshelf, grab a copy * Bleach House Library *
A warm engaging read * Woman's Way *
If you like Maeve Binchy this will be a treat * Stellar magazine *
A lovely and absorbing book by a novelist who has a gift for conveying the charm of the ordinary * Irish Independent *
