The Game of Love and Death

The Game of Love and Death (Paperback)

£7.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

Flora and Henry were born a few blocks from each other, innocent of the forces that might keep a white boy and an African American girl apart; years later they meet again and their mutual love of music sparks an even more powerful connection. But what Flora and Henry don't know is that they are pawns in a game played by the eternal adversaries Love and Death, here brilliantly reimagined as two extremely sympathetic and fascinating characters. Can their hearts and their wills overcome not only their earthly circumstances, but forces that have battled throughout history?

Staff Choice

Henry, a white boy with an academic and wealthy future ahead of him, if he just does exactly what is expected of him by his adoptive family - who do not view him as family. Flora, a black girl who spends her nights singing to make ends meet, but dreams of a life in the sky - a dream that seems as far away as the sky itself. Love and Death, who chose them as their unknowing players in a game they have no say in. When they meet, their lives are turned around, the attraction immediate. But romance isn't easy when you're from different backgrounds - having to work hard for every cent, or having everything you're told you need handed to you; being inconsequential for being white, or being noticed and scorned for being black. But when love finds you, it's hard to ignore - even when it's all a game. Beautiful, moving, and completely surprising!
