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 loved this book and hated when it ended. Loved the characters and subplots. Great Read. Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather have decided to create the best catering company in Dublin. Neither Cathy's marriage, nor Tom's relationship with his girlfriend, are everything they appear to be.
Heart-warming tales about ordinary characters who, somehow, manage to get things right in the end.-Toronto Star
