Read full description of the books:For fans of Sue Miller, a finely wrought novel of family secrets and the desire for sustaining love.
It is 1973 and the scandal of Watergate is on everyone's lips. Lucy Painter, children's book writer and single mother of two, is leaving New York and the married father of her children to return to the house in the tightly knit Washington, DC, neighborhood where she grew up and where she discovered her father's suicide.
Lucy hopes for a fresh start, but her life is full of secrets: her children know nothing of the circumstances surrounding her father's death or the identity of their own father. And as new neighbors enter their insular lives, the safety and stability of her family are in jeopardy. Lucy knows how to raise children alone, but she fears the world beyond her tiny family and her absent lover. Even as her friendship with a writer next door—whose research threatens to reveal the secret of her father—offers new possibilities, the risks of the outside world begin closing in on Lucy and her family. Beautifully told, You Are the Love of My Life is a story of how shame leads to secrets, secrets to lies, and how lies stand in the way of human connection.
