Overview

The Love of Her Life by Harriet Evans


From the author of A Hopeless Romantic and Going Home comes an engaging new novel about a young woman who suffers loss and heartbreak—only to regain a chance at happiness when she least expects it.

Thirty-year-old Kate Miller fled London two years ago when her life fell apart spectacularly. Living in New York with her mother and stepfather and working half-heartedly as a literary agent, Kate must return to London when her father, a famous classical musician, undergoes a kidney transplant. She’s only returning for a short visit, or so she thinks. But once in London, she faces the friends who are bound with her forever as a result of one day when life changed for all of them. What really happened before Kate left London? And can she pick up the pieces and allow herself to love her own life again?

Witty, smart, and entertaining, Evans’s heartwarming tale, which was a bestseller in the United Kingdom earlier this year, will delight readers who enjoy novels by Cathy Kelly, Hester Browne, and Marian Keyes.

Author Harriet Evans is an international best-seller, with other titles including: A Hopeless Romantic and Going Home. She resides in London. In London, Kate Miller had it all- An exciting job at a fashion magazine, a sexy fiancé, and the greatest friends anyone could ask for. Until one fateful day when it all went horribly wrong. Three years later, she's living in New York and still struggling to move on. When her father becomes ill, Kate must return to London to face her demons and the memories she left behind. But can she overcome the pain, forgive, and allow herself to love again? This book was a bit like reading a modern day Jane Austen novel- Frustrating, clever, and intriguing. You go through the entire book wondering what had happened to Kate so long ago that was life-changing, and when you get there, you can't help but feel the agony and torment of it. The book jumps from present to past to relay the tale of then and now, so you can't help but keep reading. Once the secret is found, it is then a battle for Kate to overcome it and move on. I can't say any more, or it will be ruined for future readers. Maddening, sad, and sweet- Harriet Evans spins a tale of real life people, their flaws, and the power of forgiveness in ones self in this title, The Love of Her Life. Kelly Moran, Author and Reviewer

In London Kate Miller loves her job and her fiancé Sean. However, she learns some truths about the man she was planning to marry and decides to end their engagement, quit her job, and cross the pond. She knows she will miss her home, her family her friends, and especially Mac who under other circumstances might have been the one.------------ After two years in the States, Kate comes home after her stepmom calls to say her dad wants to see her as he recuperates from an emergency kidney transplant operation. Her return has her looking back at what if she chose fight not flight, but not for Sean; she considers her running away cost her Mac and her family yet maybe it is time to run away again to avoid being rejected.------------------ THE LOVE OF HER LIFE is a fascinating character study of a woman who chooses flight and fright over fight. Kate is an interesting protagonist who detests confrontation so avoids it even if that means moving across the Atlantic. Although the opening chapters are difficult to classify in terms of time, readers will enjoy watching the "Old Kate" evolve into the "New Kate" though in fact they are the same essence with just a little more maturity.------------------------- Harriet Klausner

At first, I found this book excruciating to read. Not because the writing was bad, but because the beginning of the book just seemed to drag on… and on… before it started to get really interesting. The book description reveals that something terrible happened to Kate Miller in London resulting in her fleeing to New York to live with her mother and stepfather. The storyline bounces back and forth between New York and the events leading up to the painful event. As the reader, I got to the point where I could pretty much predict what bad thing happened --- it was just the matter of being patient until the author spilled the details; that doesn’t happen until about page 240. What is revealed after all the twist and turns is much more heartbreaking and tragic than what I imagined. If you are reading this book and thinking of giving up, just hang tight. I found it to be worth it in the end and would definitely recommend this book to a friend.

Started off a little slow but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. Cried my eyes out though but still so good!

I love Harriet Evans' books. They are always delightful, well written and engaging and "The Love of Her Life" is no different. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to fall into a really good story (trust me, you won't want to put it down). I look forward to her next novel!
