Is it ever too late for love?
When Mike dumps Louise on their 20th Wedding Anniversary, her entire world comes to an end.
Devastated and confused, she attempts to make sense of what happened and returns to a city she’s avoided for two decades.
Will she be able to move on with the man she left behind or will Mike’s increasingly violent and unhinged behaviour continue to haunt and ruin her life? When the reason Mike left her at long last is revealed Louise’s life is in serious danger.
“Where is he? Mike’s never late. Perhaps he forgot today’s our wedding anniversary?”
Louise dressed to look her best for her 20th wedding anniversary and hoping that Mike will appreciate it…….she’s worried he’s late, when he does eventually call, it’s only to tell her he’s leaving her……he said “consider yourself dumped”…
Totally distraught, Louise is a mess, one night she takes too many sleeping pills…..she survives but it takes a long time for her to become some semblance of her former self….with the help of her friends.
Meanwhile, Mike is now living with Abby, who is pregnant…..it is his child isn’t it? He is also hiding money from his business partner, Steve…..and is slowly falling apart.
Set in both Malmo and London, this is the tale of love, betrayal, abuse, violence, money, love and ultimately hope. A tense look at relationships and the consequences of our actions on others….an emotion packed read.
