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.

Say You Love Me Synopsis

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.
