This is story of parental sexual abuse told with sensitivity and insight. I was drawn in from the first chapter and not disappointed as the subject matter is handled delicately but with a power to shock, which is as it should be. Compelling and moving.

Synopsis

Say You Love Me by Marion Husband

Say You Love Me is a powerful, sensitive yet shocking, exploration of the long-lasting traumas caused by parental sexual abuse. Marion Husband's superbly drawn characters, loving and hating freely, both fascinate and repel.

Ben Walker sets out to trace his father and discover the truth about his adoption in 1968. But the past holds secrets that his brother Mark is desperate to keep. Old hatreds between the brothers are rekindled and their adopted father is made to face his own guilt over the events of that spring
of 1968.

Reviews

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
