They met in cooking school-and became fast friends with a common dream. Now, Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather hope to take Dublin by storm with their newly formed catering company, aptly dubbed "Scarlet Feather." Not everyone, however, shares their optimism. Cathy's mother-in-law disapproves of both Cathy and her new "hobby," while Cathy's husband Neil pays no mind to anything - except his work as a civil rights lawyer. And then there's Tom's family, who expect him to follow in his father's footsteps, and an ambitious girlfriend who's struggling with career dreams of her own. Between friends and families, ups and downs, heartaches and joys, Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather are about to embark on the most maddening - and exhilarating - year of their lives.

"Maeve Binchy has written another sure favorite. Tom Feather and Cathy Scarlet, recent cooking school graduates, have just found the perfect premises in Dublin to start their new catering company, called Scarlet Feather. Without dramatics, Caroline Winterson's understated presentation draws the reader into this relational drama. Her gentle accent and brisk reading style present the characters with precision. We meet their family and friends, and learn of the pain and joys, disappointments and successes in both their personal and professional lives. Some of the richness of character development is lost in the abridgment, but it has obviously been done with care. F.L.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
