By Purcell, Deirdre
For mother-of-the-bride Grace, it is anything but. Years of caring for her beautiful, erratic and unpredictable daughter Leonie have left her wise and worn. As she watches what began as a hopeful break away for mum and daughter become a tale of newfound passion between Irish beau...ty and besotted American male, she braces herself for drama to follow. And follow it does. In ways that even she could never have predicted. That Christmas Wedding follows divorcee Grace's journey, as she as she reaches a point in her life where, for the first time, she can put herself first - even if she wouldn't have chosen the path that brings her there. A compelling story of the bonds of motherhood and of affairs of the heart, which explores a feeling that never ages in a woman who has seen life from all sides. But can Grace manage to let love in?Read more
