Someone Else's Wedding by Tamar Cohen
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Told over 36 hours from the point of view of a mother with two grown daughters and a son none of her family knew until six months earlier. She had him when she was 16. It is his wedding they are all attending, a lovely setting for a very fine family relationship novel. Everyone has a secret to reveal and so the novel moves from one drama to another with great skill. It is very good.

If you like Tamar Cohen you might also like to read books by Zoe Heller, Amanda Prowse and Joanna Briscoe.

Synopsis

Someone Else's Wedding by Tamar Cohen

Mr & Mrs Max Irving request the company of: Mrs Fran Friedman, mourning her empty nest, the galloping years and a disastrous haircut. Mr Saul Friedman, runner of marathons, and increasingly distant husband. The two Misses Friedman, Pip and Katy, one pining over the man she can't have, the other trying to shake off the man she no longer wants. At the marriage of their son James, forbidden object of troubling desire. For thirty-six hours of secrets and lies, painted-on-smiles and potential ruin. And drinks, plenty of drinks. There's nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past. As Fran negotiates her way from Saturday morning to Sunday evening she is forced to confront things she's long thought buried, and to make decisions about the future that will have far-reaching consequences for them all.
