Book:Two Fridays in April:2015 Book
Author: Meaney, Roisin
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Hachette Books Ireland
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: It's Friday, April 2. Daphne Darling knows that she should be celebrating her stepdaughter, Una's 17th birthday, but it's hard, because the date also marks the one-year anniversary of her husband, Finn's death. Daphne can't turn to her own mother, Isobel, for advice - ever since Isobel ran out on Daphne and Dad Jack for a new life, they have never been close. Finn's elderly mother Mo is still grief-stricken at the death of her only son, so she is of little help. But by the end of that day in April, things will have changed for all of them. Una, it would seem, has disappeared. She's told them all that she is eating at a friend's house, but instead, she's at a mystery wedding - with the last people on earth she might be expected to have befriended. And what's more, Una has decided to track down her 'real' Dad, with the help of a stranger.
