Set in the heart of contemporary London, Rosie Walsh’s The Love of My Life tells a story about love, connection and loss that will stay with you long after the final page. Ellen is an easygoing woman who leads a contented life surrounded by close friends and family. But when she meets Lee, her world is turned upside down. A damaged but irresistibly attractive man, Lee stirs something deep inside Ellen that she never knew existed – a powerful force that tempts her away from everything safe and familiar into his tumultuous orbit. As their relationship spirals out of control, Ellen faces an impossible choice: cling to what she knows or risk it all for the passionate high-stakes adventure of being with Lee? With deft insight and unforgettable emotion, Walsh brings readers on an intense journey through the dizzying highs and terrifying lows of falling madly in love.
