Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather have decided to create the best catering company in Dublin. They have the perfect premises, heaps of talent, and even a few contacts - but not everyone seems as pleased by the idea of 'Scarlet Feather' as they are. Tom's parents are disappointed that he has turned his back on the family business.
Cathy's husband buries himself in work, becoming ever more distant, whilst his mother thinks Cathy should stay at home to look after him. And Tom's relationship with his beautiful, ambitious girlfriend becomes fraught as she struggles to realise her dream of becoming a model. As Cathy and Tom strive to maintain their emotional ties amidst catering triumphs and disasters they are supported - and undermined - by an enchanting cast of classic Binchy characters.

Great listen, setting the story was slow
Throughly enjoyable heart warming story just a bit slow establishing the story line and characters
Welcome to the world of Scarlet Feather
Would you consider the audio edition of Scarlet Feather to be better than the print version?
I've not read the hard copy of Scarlet Feather, however, I've listened to enough audio books and read enough hard copies to know sometimes you need to do both. I don't feel compelled to buy the book in this case. Kate Binchy does an exquisite job changing voices and scenes as if it were coming to life before your eyes. Maeve Binchy's smooth style of transition into the next scene makes you feel as though you were teleported from home to home & scene to scene. The emotions she evokes-fear, anger, joy, etc, makes you feel as if you are in each character's skin.
What other book might you compare Scarlet Feather to and why?
Tara Road is the only other book of her's that I've read. I'm on to Quentin's next.
Have you listened to any of Kate Binchy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
The world's that Maeve Binchy creates aren't perfect worlds, but they're worlds in which you want to escape. They offer you alternatives to situations within your own life.
full of clichés and backwards
I loved other titles from Binchy, e.g. circle if friends and glass lake, but this story is just painful. The characters are too flat and pure cliché, cliché about class, old money, new money, working class, women, men...
