Learning by Heart Synopsis

One small, faded, leather-bound journal. One photograph in a newspaper. These two seemingly small items are set to change lives forever.
 

Just when success seems set fair for Zeph’s writer husband Nick, she discovers that he has been having an affair. Wounded and angry, she turns to her mother for support, only to discover that the past has also come back to haunt Cora, a person who always seemed utterly flawless. For now comes evidence of Cora’s own long-ago relationship with a famous man, a man who so adored Zeph’s mother that he never forgot her.

Zeph is forced to see her own childhood in an entirely new light. Was her parents’ happiness a sham, as hers and Nick’s threatens to be? And how much can you trust the person who tells you that they love you?

Set in both England and the alluringly beautiful island of Sicily, Learning by Heart explores the complexities and subtleties of marriage, of lasting love and human frailty.
