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.

Listener Opinions

    " This was as good as Tara Road by the same author. Just a great book that is very entertaining. This book is not going to change your life, but I didn't want it to be over. I started it on vacation and then would only read a little at a time to make it last longer! Get this for your summer book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patsy | 2/10/2014

    " This was a good read. Once I became familar with the author's voice and style of writing, I really enjoyed the flow of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Webster | 2/9/2014

    " Second favourite Binchy book after The Glass Lake, Scarlet Feather is a wonderful story with two of the most endearing characters the author's ever come up with (and that's saying something)- the children Simon and Maud. Fans of Binchy's expertise at intertwining characters and plots will not be disappointed with this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sande Fitzpatrick | 2/2/2014

    " One of my favorite authors who writes about relationships. I enjoyed this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria M. Elmvang | 1/24/2014

    " This book always makes me sooooo hungry! I want to be able to cook meals like the ones they make :-) I think this is my favourite of Maeve Binchy's books, although this time round I found I could relate to Cathy and Neil's marital problems a bit too much, compared to before I got married. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Slincn | 1/22/2014

    " A bit too long for the amount of fluff contained with in. Interesting characters, but they don't actually DO all that much over the course of the book. I felt as though it could have been 100 pages shorter without much loss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla | 1/17/2014

    " This is one of my favorite books by Binchy, and it is so well written that you actually feel like you are living the lives of the characters. You experience all of their ups and downs, and when the last page is done you are left wanting more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April Boswell | 1/4/2014

    " My favorite Maeve Binchy book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh Statham | 12/9/2013

    " This was the perfect little book for the holidays. I seem to always come back to Ms Binchy during the long winter months. Her characters are so easy to relate to and her stories always different and interesting. Very good winter time comfort reading. Goes very well with fuzzy socks and hot cocoa :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosemarie | 11/24/2013

    " The character breath, depth and interaction is very well done! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana Stevan | 11/5/2013

    " Found this book overly long but well written. Maeve Binchy successfully wove in plots for many characters, but it seemed to take forever for anything to happen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 10/18/2013

    " I had a little trouble getting into this because so many characters were introduced in the beginning, but once I got past that I liked it. "

    " Tom Feather and Cathy Scarlet begin a catering business in Dublin, Ireland. This story is about their dreams, struggles and their families. I was sad when I finished because I did not want the story to end. Great lovable characters which is a trademark of Maeve Binchy. "

    " Or I should say, I used to love her. I am so surprised by the agnostic tone of conversations. I didn't even finish this one. It is interesting how things that I loved before I began to walk with Christ are no longer appealing to me. "
