From the cover: “It is Christmas 1993. Kate and Tony Chivers are preparing to face the festive rounds, stocking the house full of food, decking out the tree, waiting for family and friends to arrive, primed to distribute goodwill to all and sundry… But can the spirit of goodwill survive Tony’s brother turning up without his family and with a new religion? What are the portents when their son ditches his regular girlfriend appears with an ‘older woman’ and reveals that he is to become a father? Then there is Jenny, their daughter, married to an absent serving soldier in Northern Ireland, who introduces two strangers into the already loaded atmosphere. Chaos, catastrophe and high drama follow on each other’s tail as they muddle their way towards Twelfth Night. The annual rituals, familiar to us all, are given a hilarious and immensely warm reworking in this rich comedy of manners.”
