Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Loving Him by Kate O'Riordan

Connie and Matt Wilson, once childhood sweethearts, have worked hard to achieve their dreams - their lovely London home, their three beloved sons and a stable, trusting marriage.

When they go to Rome for a romantic weekend break, they have a wonderful time exploring, eating, drinking and making love. On their last day, Matt announces to Connie that he is not coming back to England with her. She returns to London - and their three boys - alone.

LOVING HIM is the story of what happens when the love of your life bumps into the love of his life... the one before you, the one he never really got over. It describes the consequences of a random, chance encounter and how it can set off a chain of events that turns a woman's existence from banal, but blissful, domesticity to dangerous obsession.

Kate O'Riordan has fashioned a tightly weaved, intense and dramatically paced tale of a family, a marriage and how you can never quite escape the power of the past.
