Inhaltsangabe

I'll tell you something, something important. Love is a decision. Not a feeling. That's what you young people don't realise. That's why you're always off divorcing each other. No offence, dear.

So decrees the formidable Connie Thrum of Scribbly Gum Island. She is the chief decision-maker of a rather unconventional family and her word is law. It's been over 70 years since Connie and her sister Rose visited their neighbours and found the kettle boiling and a baby waking for her feed, but no sign of her parents. The 'Munro Baby Mystery' still hasn't been solved and tourists can visit the abandoned home, exactly as it was found in 1932.

But now Connie has passed away and the island residents ponder her legacy. Sophie Honeywell is looking down the barrel of her 40th birthday and still hoping for that fairytale ending. Her beautiful new friend Grace, the Munro Baby's grand daughter, can't tell anyone what she hopes for. It would be too shocking.

Meanwhile, a frumpy housewife makes a pact with a stranger, an old lady starts making her own decisions and a family secret finally explodes on an extraordinary night of mulled wine, fire-eating, and face-painting - The Last Anniversary.

"A stunner... Moriarty's prose turns from funny through poignant to frightening in an artful snap." ( Publishers Weekly)

Grandios geschrieben!

Ein herzerwärmendes, witziges, erfrischend realistisches Buch!!! Konnte einfach nicht aufhören! So schade, dass es zu Ende ging!
Ich würde es am liebsten weiter und weiter hören:)
Einfach großartig!

Liked it

I liked this book as I love great characters and this book has quite a few. I especially loved Conny and Grace, and Rose! It was read out very well too. I like islands and love that it is set in Australia. Very enjoyable listen all round.

One of her best stories!

That range of characters among women is fantastic! The story is constructed thoughtfully and so lovely. It really could have happened that way!

nice Story

Ein bisschen langatmig, was die Charaktere nicht so griffig macht . Die Geschichte ist originell. Die Sprecherin ist gut.
