"Whatever made us think that a catering business had anything to do with producing food?" asks the exasperated heroine of Maeve Binchy's Scarlet Feather. Cathy Scarlet and her partner Tom Feather had wanted to open their own catering firm ever since they attended college together. When the perfect location finally becomes available at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve, they jump straight into renovations, ignoring the owner's mysterious eagerness to sell. But as they soon learn, chasing a dream demands far more than just cream puffs and canapés. In the months that follow, Tom and Cathy weather the ups and downs of founding a small business, soothe many a client's fragile ego, plan and pull off a fairy-tale wedding, minister to two of the most appealingly waifish children this side of Dickens, and generally work themselves to the bone--all the while producing some of the most exquisite food Dublin has ever seen.

Binchy is a master spinner of tales, the kind of storyteller who captures the rich tapestry of relationships at work in even the most ordinary of lives. Tom and Cathy come surrounded by a cast of characters as skillfully drawn as themselves: Neil, Cathy's activist-lawyer-husband, who's so busy worrying about the world's problems that he sometimes forgets to worry about his own; beautiful Marcella, Tom's girlfriend, who wants to be a top model more than anything else; and most endearingly of all, Maud and Simon, Neil's neglected 8-year-old cousins, who prove equally talented at wreaking havoc and asking awkward questions. Stir in a full complement of clients, family, friends, and enemies, and you have the makings of a bestseller that's very busy and very Binchy. Tom and Cathy's work, after all, is not so different from that of the novelist herself. Like writers, they stage-manage some of the most important events in people's lives, from weddings and funerals to romances and reunions. Before the year is out, Tom, Cathy, Neil, and Marcella will find themselves changed forever--and Binchy fans will have fallen in love with yet another of her fully realized worlds. --Chloe Byrne

Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather are on the brink of realising their dream: to open a catering company in the heart of Dublin, the eponymous Scarlet Feather. Friends since college, Cathy and Tom are sure of each other and united in their shared goal, but not everyone around them is so supportive of their ambitions.

A disapproving mother-in-law, an overworked husband, a distracted girlfriend and terrible twins, hell-bent on creating as much havoc and asking as many difficult (yet humorous) questions as they possibly can, stir up recipes for trouble. Passion could very well be a feature on the menu as Tom and Cathy turn increasingly to each other for support and grow ever closer in their shared aim of making Scarlet Feather the best catering company Dublin has ever seen.

In Scarlet Feather Binchy once more does what she does best: introducing a cast of characters whose personalities develop gently and whose lives are carefully and almost imperceptibly blended into the mix of love affairs, heartache, humour and family ties. One of the finest aspects of Binchy's feather-light touch is that it's almost possible to forget that you are reading a work of fiction and feel instead as if you are amongst a group of friends. --Emily Lowson

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mitreissender Entwicklungsroman 20. März 2002
Format:Taschenbuch
"Scarlet Feather" stellt über den Zeitraum eines Jahres das Leben einer jungen Frau in Dublin dar, die sich an einem entscheidenden Wendepunkt befindet. Sie ist mit einem erfolgreichen Rechtsanwalt verheiratet, möchte aber eine eigene Karriere aufbauen. Für diesen Traum kämpft sie mit all ihrer Energie. In diesem "Kampf" wird sie mit den diversten Widernissen konfrontiert, die sie schier verzweifeln lassen. Aber sie reift auch an diesen Auseinandersetzungen und erkennt schließlich, was und wer wirklich wichtig und hilfreich für sie ist.
Ein wundervoller Roman! Ein Teil der Nebencharaktere mag zu Beginn vielleicht etwas stereotypisch wirken, aber fast alle machen im Lauf des beschriebenen Jahres ihre eigene Entwicklung durch. Die "Verwobenheit" mehrerer Handlungsstränge aus der Sicht der unterschiedlichen Beteiligten bildet außerdem einen wichtigen Aspekt der Erzählkunst Maeve Binchys.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Food for your literary tastebuds 17. September 2002
Format:Taschenbuch
Cathy Scarlet and her friend Tom Feather share a dream -- becoming Dublin's best caterer. As with most dreams, reality proves to be by far harsher than expected. Yet Cathy and Tom are determined to overcome all obstacles, trying to find a balance between work and private life with family and friends.

Irish author Maeve Binchy leads the reader through the most important year of her two main protagonists' lives -- a year during which Cathy and Tom learn more about themselves and what is really important for them. The reader is easily drawn into their world, getting to know Cathy's husband Neil, an ambitious lawyer, Tom's girlfriend Marcella, who wants to pursue a career as model, and many other family members and friends. Slowly but surely the different storylines entwine until the novel ends at Christmas.

Some dialogues seem unnatural and more like lines in a play, especially those of Neil's little cousins, the twins Maud and Simon. Binchy chose to divide the novel into 13 chapters -- New Year's Eve and the following 12 months. Each chapter has a lot of paragraphs, thus sometimes disturbing the story's flow. However, "Scarlet Feather" is an enjoyable read with believable characters and a satisfying ending.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sorrows of Seeking Joy 24. April 2007
Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Cooking school classmates Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather have dreamed of offering gourmet meals in peoples' homes at moderate cost. In Scarlet Feather, you will learn about their first year in business, and how their entrepreneurship affects them and those they love. The book captures the rapidly changing contemporary scene in Dublin, and will make anyone want to visit . . . and have a wonderful meal at Quentin's.

Like Tara Road, the book is filled with an enormous number of characters, most of whom are related to one another in either the Mitchell, Scarlet or Feather families. As you read the book, jot down who's who. It will help you keep the characters straight. A number of them only appear every two hundred pages or so.

The book deals with a number of appealing themes. Among them are what makes for a loving relationship, our responsibility to the less fortunate, the reasonable boundaries for one's own career aspirations, what noble behavior is, the need for personal responsibility, the dangers of allowing hope or despair to overwhelm an objective view of oneself, and how abused children should be cared for.

The messages that come out of the book are sort of a downer though. Almost all men unreliable, parents should be watched lest they do harm to their children, you don't really know the people you love until you try to rely on them . . . and then you will be disappointed, upper class people have no class, poor people are their own worst enemies, most peoples' dreams are pretty silly, ambitious people will pay an enormous price, family law is filled with stupidity, and almost everyone puts their own interests ahead of everyone else's no matter what the cost.
