A Powerful & Compelling
Meritt delivers a superb debut.
Is it ever too late to leave your past and the
secrets that haunt you behind?
Angelica Schirrick wonders how her life could have gotten so far off-track. With her two children in tow, she leaves her felon husband and begins a journey of self-discovery that leads her back home to Ohio. It pains her to remember the promise her future once held, that time before the disappearance of her first love, and the shattering revelation that derailed her life and divided her parents. Only when she finally learns to accept the violence of her beginning can she be open to life again, and maybe to a second chance at love. "With tenderness, but without blinking, Linda K. Sienkiewicz turns her eye on the predator-prey savannah of the young and still somehow hopeful." ~ Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of the #1 NY Times Bestseller, Deep End of the Ocean
A deeply affecting and wonderfully absorbing read, In The Context Of Love is the new novel from author Linda K. Sienkiewicz and it proves a genuine gem. Nothing we can say or do happens in a vacuum, everything we do has consequences on some level and it’s this sentiment that really underpins Sienkiewicz’s plot. Take it as a given that the writing is excellent as she steers away from clichéd characters that are crippled by irony. They feel overwhelmingly realistic, brought to life with a certain poetic resonance and it’s clear that Sienkiewicz respects them for what they represent and the social commentary they engender. We may not like some of them but as Angelica’s story unfolds we’re reminded that the years which ultimately shape us are often the most painful to recall. Running the gamut of emotions it’s a story that transcends time and place to become a universal tale of hope to which many readers will readily relate to.
A powerful and enduring read that will spark a raft of emotions, In The Context Of Love is a must read for the year ahead and is recommended without reservation.
