‘This family’s poisoned. They won’t tell you, but they are.’
From a hot, tense Cornwall summer in 1963 to present day London, LOVE ALWAYS is the story of one girl’s life falling apart and what she finds out along the way as she tries to put it back together again.
Things have gone badly wrong for Natasha Kapoor, somewhere – she should be a successful jeweller in East London with a gorgeous husband and everything should be perfect, but it’s not. And when her grandmother dies and she travels back to Summercove, the family home by the Cornish sea, she is given a some old, scribbled page by her grandfather. It’s the fragment of the diary of her aunt Cecily, who died in a tragic accident many years ago, leaving behind a broken family and a terrible secret. What happened that summer in 1963 and is Natasha’s family irrevocably poisoned by it? Will Natasha ever be able to make a fresh start and find love for herself and if so, how?
