A feel-good festive tale from the No.1 bestselling author of I'll Be Home for Christmas, The Birthday Party and The People Next Door.
It's the weekend before Christmas. Julia, Eddie and Steph are making separate journeys to Ireland to attend the wedding of their beloved Annie, the woman who fostered each of them in their childhoods and to spend the weekend in the house that gave them all shelter when they needed it most.
All three are now adults -- Julia, a world famous singer living in luxury in Paris; Eddie, a chef in London; and Steph who spends her days on a remote Greek island, running a writers' retreat with her older lover -- but as the wedding celebrations get underway, certain truths come to light which show that past hurts have yet to heal.
As Annie says 'I do', the three make some discoveries about themselves -- but will the guests of the wedding party get their happy-ever-after in time for Christmas day?
It's that Time of Year is the spellbinding, warm-hearted new novel from one of Ireland's best-loved writers.
