Scarlet Feather is Maeve Binchey at her best. Following the lives of several residents in modern day Dublin and their various involvement with the Scarlet Feather catering business. Friends from school days, Tom and Cathy have invested their all in the catering business~~but friends, family, lovers, and the odd abandoned child or two, have a way of getting involved. This is Maeve Binchey at her best, weaving the everyday lives of various people of all classes and interest, into a seamless story. The language and the dialog ring true and carry the story along. The characters are allowed to be themselves,their good and bad characteristics and all their human frailties included. The story is character driven, and moves along at a good clip. Even though it is over 500 pages, it is a fast read, one you don't want to put down.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book...the ongoing saga of three families kept the reader turning pages. I immediately ordered another book written by the author because of her ability to hook you into her world.

I really enjoyed this read. It started out a little slow for me but when I got past that it was great.

This book does not have the intensity of "Tara Road" , but is just as interesting and spell binding. I loved it from the first page to the last. It is very descriptive and is a feel good book. It has a lovely love story in it.
