Big family occasions can be fraught with hidden peril as Alice finds out as she organises her 40th wedding anniversary celebrations. This is a warm, wise and moving new novel from the author of FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND.

The Garden Party Synopsis

The perfect family celebration requires the perfect family...Alice Dunlop knows the best things in life are free. But the approach of her 40th wedding anniversary and 60th birthday surely warrants a proper celebration. With visions of a glorious family gathering complete with a marquee, champagne and beautiful sunshine, Alice has big plans for the big day. Her husband David isn't so enthused. He seems to have lost his lust for life since retiring from his job. And he's not the only one who isn't in the mood to celebrate. Each of Alice and David's four grown-up children has their own problems to contend with and things aren't going as smoothly as any of them had hoped. As Alice focuses on preparations for the party, her family begins to unravel around her. Even her husband's sudden rise from apathy isn't as great a blessing as it first appears. It's only a matter of time before Alice's special day is at risk of disaster...
