Silver Wedding, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


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...

Review by

What ages would I recommend it too? – Sixteen and up. <br/><br/>Length? – Several day’s read.<br/><br/>Characters? – Memorable, several characters.<br/><br/>Setting? – London England, and Ireland 1980's.<br/><br/>Written approximately? – 1989.<br/><br/>Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – No.<br/><br/>Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? No.<br/><br/>Notes for the reader: Not as good as some of her other stories. Each story is an individual story that begin and end together, and yet leave several open holes within the framework of the story.
