The Christmas Party by Karen Swan

christmas party

It has been unfortunate Christmas this just passed. So why not read about another Christmas. Read about family difficulties, money worries, forbidden affairs, dark secrets, falling in and out of love, and lots of glitz and glamour,

Karen Swan gives an alternative Christmas, set in a castle in a remote corner of Ireland. The locals are there, the old misunderstandings, the shared stories and traditions all make this novel so easy to read.

The three sisters are very different, but all share a passion for their home which just happens to be a crumbling old castle, in need of massive amounts of money and energy. The sisters don’t have the money but they each have a part to play in the fate of the old pile.

This is light Christmas reading that does what it says on the tin, entertains, amuses and leaves us in a better place for having read it.
