'This story is written with so much heart, its beat is palpable in every word on every page' Cecelia Ahern, author of P.S. I Love You.

New York food writer Tressa returns from honeymoon worried that she has married her impossibly handsome new husband Dan out of late-thirties panic instead of love.

In 1930's Ireland, her grandmother, Bernadine, is married off to the local schoolteacher after her family are unable to raise a dowry for her to marry her true love, Michael.

During the first year of her marriage, Tressa distracts herself from her stay-or-go dilemma by working on her grandmother's recipes, searching for solace and answers through their preparation.

Through the stories of these two women The Perfect Marriage challenges the modern ideal of romantic love as a given and ponders whether true love can really be learned.
