Synopsis

_________



'The must-read of the summer' The Times



'Looks at the power of love and loss in shaping one's life. Moving and beautifully written' Grazia



'By turns painful and joyful, this beautiful book has plenty of poignant lessons to teach us about grief and love' Cosmopolitan

_________



Seven-year-old Gavanndra Hodge's life is a precarious place. Her father is a hairdresser and drug dealer to Chelsea's most decadent inhabitants; her mother an alcoholic ex-model. So, it is up to Gavanndra to keep her little sister Candy safe.



But when Candy dies suddenly on holiday aged nine, Gavanndra's family, already so fragile and damaged, implodes.



Now a mother herself, and with only memories of Candy's awful final moments, Gavanndra embarks on a journey to write her way back to the little girl whose death tore her family apart.



The Consequences of Love is a story of loss and recovery, trauma and memory. It is a joyous and compelling account of the strength of the love between sisters and how nothing is ever truly lost if we are brave enough to return to where we began.



'Unflinchingly honest . . . everyone should read it' The Sunday Times



'A wonderful and transformative memoir about the impact of loss and the power of love; and one that illustrates how it is never too late to tackle suppressed grief' Julia Samuel, author of the Sunday Times bestseller This Too Shall Pass: Stories of Change, Crisis and Hopeful Beginnings



I read this in one sitting, tears splashing onto its pages. A beautiful book about grief, losing a sibling, trauma, drugs, parenting & memory in the most exquisite way. Please everyone read it' Emma Gannon, podcaster, author of Olive and founder of The Hyphen Book Club
