Product Description


Banais na Bliadhna (The Wedding of the Year) Banais eile, prèasantan a bharrachd, agus cosgais mhòr nan lùib. Tha Anna seachd sgìth dheth, is i aig bòrd nan singilteach a-rithist. Ach an turas seo tha fireannach ann a tha den aon bharail mu bhainnsean, agus moladh dàna aige. Carson nach pòs iadsan? Gheibh iad airgead agus prèasantan mìorbhaileach, agus an uair sin dh'fhaodadh iad dealachadh bho chèile. Dè an cron? Cha deidheadh càil ceàrr.

Relegated to the singletons' table at yet another wedding, Anna is fed up with forking out for her friends' extravagant presents. Newlyweds won't settle for a toaster and a set of towels; they want balloon trips across the Serengeti. If only there was a way for her to enjoy all the treats she's been lavishing on her friends. And then she meets Donald - equally cynical about weddings and totally up for a charade that will deceive everyone they know. 

Banais na Bliadhna (The Wedding of the Year) takes a swipe at big fat weddings, cutting through the lace and icing to the ruthless consumerism beneath. It's a comedy of manners for everyone who has ever gazed in horror at a wedding list, or wondered if they've made the right decision - about those sherry glasses, or about the person they've chosen to spend their life with.

The Lasag Gaelic readers series offers young adults a range of engaging, easy-to-read fiction, with English chapter summaries and glossaries to assist Gaelic learners.
