The Last Days of Joy  by Anne Tiernan



.Joy, the complicated, troubled mother, She's spent her life running from her past while trying to raise her children as best she can.

Conor, the high-achieving eldest child, A high-profile media figure and CEO, he's walking a fine line between self-promotion and self-detonation.

Frances, the 'perfect' middle child, Now a wife and mother, she's about to make a mistake that could destroy her marriage.

Youngest daughter, Sinead, the acclaimed writer, Wrestling with writer's block, she resorts to desperate measures to deliver her next bestselling book to her publishers.

When Joy's children receive the news that she has only days to live, they rush to her side,bringing with them all of the dysfunction and hurt they have been carrying since their childhoods. Each of them is at a crossroads in their lives - but there's one more secret about their mother they need to learn.

Will they finally be able to forgive their mother and, in doing so, face their futures together?


The Last Days of Joy examines family, mental health and motherhood and is already being described as a worthy successor of Meg Mason's Sorrow And Bliss - Irish Independent

The Last Days of Joy is a page turner, portraying the madness and messiness of family life. This novel is full of humanity, its cast of characters all at the centre of tragedy, but coupled with Tiernan's deliciously dark humour and sharp observations on modern life--it works brilliantly. I loved it! - Elaine Feeney

Moving, funny, sharp, and beautifully written, The Last Days of Joy is an absolutely stunning debut. I laughed and cried my way through and can't wait to read the next Anne Tiernan - Andrea Mara
