Synopsis

Love Falls by Esther Freud

It is July, three months after Lara's seventeenth birthday, and a week before Charles and Diana's Royal Wedding. When Lara's father, a man she barely knows, invites her to accompany him on holiday, she finds herself far away from the fumes of London's Holloway Road in the sun-scorched hillsides of Tuscany. There she meets the Willoughby family, rife with illicit alliances and vendettas. The more embroiled Lara becomes with them, and with the carelessly beautiful Kip, the more consumed she is with doubt, curiosity and dread. And so begins her intoxicating, troubled journey into self discovery and across the very fine line between childhood and what lies beyond.

Reviews

Daily Mail

'Her most subtle and most affecting book yet'
Independent on Sunday

'Love Falls captures the delicious uncertainty and electrifying beginnings of first love'
Glamour

'As a coming-of-age tale, Love Falls is expertly realised ... the entire book radiates with the empathy for which Freud is known'
Times Literary Supplement
