Summary

A collection of short stories from the Archives, read for Radio 4, by best-selling author Maeve Binchy.

Stories included are: "The Garden Party" - Helen looked down at Mrs. Kennedy's garden. It was cheerfully coloured yet ordered, like Mrs. Kennedy. But first impressions are not always reliable.

"The Special Sale" - Yvonne's good deed leads to a romantic encounter on the day after Christmas.

"The Sensible Celebration" - Are the picture-perfect couple really the ones to envy? All is not as it seems....

"Dolly's Mother" - If you were square and solid and without colour and grace, it was sometimes easy to hate Mother.
