Maeve Binchy has written another sure favorite. Tom Feather and Cathy Scarlet, recent cooking school graduates, have just found the perfect premises in Dublin to start their new catering company, called Scarlet Feather. Without dramatics, Caroline Winterson's understated presentation draws the reader into this relational drama. Her gentle accent and brisk reading style present the characters with precision. We meet their family and friends, and learn of the pain and joys, disappointments and successes in both their personal and professional lives. Some of the richness of character development is lost in the abridgment, but it has obviously been done with care. F.L.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
