There has been by no means any query that Deirdre and Desmond Doyle might have fun a gala twenty-fifth anniversary. obviously, their daughter Anna, may plan their grand affair. Of all 3 Doyle young children, Anna knew precisely what their mom wished—even as she lived her personal mystery existence. Will Brendan, the rebellious son, even trouble to come to London? Will Helen, the hapless would-be nun, embarrass all of them? this is often Deirdre’s day, a triumph for a girl enthusiastic about maintaining appearances, her silvery revenge after “marrying down” twenty-five years in the past. She’s made up our minds to teach all of them: the maid of honor, nonetheless single, nonetheless lovely, now a profitable London company woman…the top guy, as soon as Desmond’s shut pal, now his boss…their reluctant priest, who harbors his personal accountable secret.
As friends and family assemble, a life of lies takes its toll. yet what starts off as a kin charade brings with it the reworking energy of love—and fact.
