The Science of Broken Hearts

Author: M St David Format: Paperback Release Date: 13/08/2021

Written in first person, ‘The Science of Broken Hearts’ by M St David introduces us to Dr Hunter Newton, a physician with many home and work life complications. The re-emergence of an old flame, now terminally ill, sends Hunter's life even closer to disaster territory than ever. With a prescription drug addiction and difficulty maintaining a strictly professional relationship with his patients, does Hunter really need to invite his first love into his life as his patient tenant and maybe something more? This is an interesting work of contemporary fiction, there are relationships and family dramas throughout the plot which would allow this book to sit within those genres too. As I read I couldn’t quite figure out where the plot was taking me, the redemptive arc subtly hidden behind the focus on Deanna’s health and the spectre of Hunter’s dead brother Grayling which looms large throughout the book. Hunter as a character didn’t inspire empathy in me, but he was well constructed in his self-obsession and self-destruction and I was curious about where the plot of the story would take him. The rest of the cast of characters, although limited as we see them through Hunter’s eyes, have their own developments throughout the book while also supporting Hunter when needed. I was intrigued by this book to the end, it’s a curious tale of loss, guilt and redemption.  Charlotte Walker, A LoveReading Ambassador
