Planning a wedding is like preparing for war!

Sorcha LOVES weddings. Just like the other girls in the parish, she’s been dying for her own day since forever and ever. The thing is, she has just run away from her own reception. Has she gone mad? Or is this the first moment of clarity she’s had in years? Perched on the edge of her ‘perfectly planned’ life, Sorcha is pure ragin’ at the dawning reality that she’s never really listened to herself. Can she ever go back?
