Join Ingrid Persaud and Colin Grant as they discuss Ingrid's electrifying new novel, 'Love After Love'.
Meet the Ramdin-Chetan family: forged through loneliness, broken by secrets, saved by love.
Irrepressible Betty Ramdin, her shy son Solo and their marvellous lodger, Mr Chetan, form an unconventional household, happy in their differences, as they build a home together. Home: the place where your navel string is buried, keeping these three safe from an increasingly dangerous world. Happy and loving they are, until the night when a glass of rum, a heart to heart and a terrible truth explodes the family unit, driving them apart.
Brave and brilliant, steeped in affection, 'Love After Love' is a novel full of heart which asks us to consider what happens at the very brink of human forgiveness, and offers hope to anyone who has loved and lost and has yet to find their way back.
'Restless, heart-breaking and intensely spellbinding, Love after Love will stay with you long after the last page.' - Andre Aciman
