Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 5 February 2009.

It has been a little while since we had a novel from this author but it has been worth the wait as she returns with an emotional and remarkable family saga. Thoroughly absorbing and moving.

Synopsis

The Truth About Love by Josephine Hart

It’s dangerous . . . and that’s the truth about love . . .

A young man shields his terrible wounds from his mother; a husband believes he can love his grief-stricken wife back to life; a young girl puts her own life on hold until her family can find their way back from blinding pain; a man surrenders to the helplessness of obsessive love.

Set in Ireland, this brilliant, intense story is about a family named O’Hara who chose to remain in the place of their loss, and the stranger from Germany who has run from his. It’s about love – for another, for a country, for family – and survival, and it’s remarkable.
