Bookbox - ABC VBB; Nice story with a lot of characters; focus is on Tom Feather and Cathy Scarlet who met in a cooking class and now are opening a catering business in Dublin. I saw some breakups and get togethers in the stars, but some were a surprise. Overall, good reading. ( )

I did not think it was possible for me to not love a Maeve Binchy book. I am sorry, but 556 pages was way too long for this extremely slow and boring book. I think she could have cut this down by half and it would have improved things by leaps and bounds.

I went back and read Scarlet Feather because I had previously read about Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather in subsequent books and was curious about these two.

The book follows Cathy and Tom for a whole year while they try to set up their catering business. Do you want to read endless descriptions of food? How many times they cleaned glasses and plates? How Cathy hates her mother in law? How Tom is jealous of his long term girlfriend? Well if so, this is the book for you.

I was puzzled by Cathy's marriage to her husband Neil Mitchell. I honestly did not see what attracted them to one another at all. It's pretty clear that they are both on two different paths so reading about it for over 500 pages made me want to scream. Cathy's straight up antagonistic relationship with her mother in law which eventually turned less hostile took up a lot of pages and I wish that we had skipped over it all. Honestly, the only reason why we focus so much on the Mitchell family is because Neil's younger cousins ended up taking up a large portion of the novel.

Tom I had a lot of problems with. He loves his long term girlfriend Marcella, but I never got the sense that he got her or understood her at all. Everyone around them could plainly see her and him for that matter, and he seemed to have no clue about things. I thought the way things tangled up between them and were ultimately resolved made Tom look like an ass.

We have secondary characters galore. Cathy's husband, in laws, in-cousins, her parents, her brothers and sisters, and Tom's family. We just had too much time spent on people that I was really not interested in reading about for as long as I did.

The writing was typical Maeve Binchy, but I did miss her ability to get to the point a lot quicker in her later books. I think Ms. Binchy was a master short story writer, and I am surprised this book went out as is with so much stuff in it. The flow wasn't great. I fell asleep a few times reading this book I am ashamed to admit. It was really boring.

The setting of Ireland was great and I loved re-visiting some former characters here and there. That's one of the main reasons why I gave it 3 stars.

The ending was a joke and I felt like if I had not read other novels featuring these same characters I would have had no idea what this ending meant.

Maeve Binchy doesn't disappoint. I loved the characters. ( )

Likely my one and only Maeve Binchy book. The story of Cathy Scarlet and her cooking school buddy Tom Feather who open a catering business in Dublin. Lots of family squabbles, business decisions and diasaters and some romance. ( )
