A thoughtful engrossing read. Warm and insightful. Roisin Meaney is a skilful storyteller
A lovely and absorbing book by a novelist who has a gift for conveying the charm of the ordinary
Highly engaging and heartwarming ... I truly adored the book and devoured it within a few short hours
Praise for Roisin Meaney
Meaney weaves wonderful feel-good tales of a consistently high standard. And that standard rises with each book she writes
A cracking yarn ... Meaney can excavate the core of our human failings and present it to us, mirror-like, on the page ... Which makes her utterly credible, utterly authentic, utterly irresistible
If you like Maeve Binchy this will be a treat
A warm engaging read
This book is like chatting with a friend over a cup of tea - full of gossip and speculation, and all the things that make life interesting
It's easy to see why Roisin Meaney is one of Ireland's best-loved authors ... Should you spot this on a bookshelf, grab a copy
A real treat ... [Meaney's] ability to weave stories around a seemingly random cast is simply uncanny ... [she]wraps her readers in the company and comfort of ordinary strangers
The Anniversary is an addictive read with engaging, flawed characters and a unique writing flair that pulls you into the plot from the very beginning and keeps you entranced to the very end
Roisin Meaney has once again done herself proud and written a book that should feature on many people's reading lists for this summer ... Do yourselves a favour and buy this book.
The perfect example of an author at the pinnacle of her career
A delightful read about relationships and the complexities associated with family life ... A cosy read for any time of the year, be it in your beach bag or sitting curled up in front of the fire.
