APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The 20th book by Irish author Sheila O’Flanagan is a bustling, warm-hearted saga that launches many dramatic bombshells. A surprise party for Jenny and Pascal Sheehan’s 40th wedding anniversary, organised by the couple’s children, goes awry. With a cast of thousands, O’Flanagan’s novel boasts photorealistic characters and a crisis-filled plot that’s still utterly believable. My Mother’s Secret is relatable, humorous and romantic—just what we’ve come to expect from O’Flanagan.
