One love. Two people. Twenty Years.
From the moment their eyes met across the room at a house party, Erin and Dom were meant to be.
If only it could be so simple. Over the years, the highs and lows of life conspire to keep them apart.
But a notebook can bring them together. On the blank pages of their love story, they write down everything they can’t always say – the secrets, the hopes and the love.
Falling in love is easy but staying in love is where the story begins…

The book Of Love is a wonderfully romantic, absorbing and thought provoking book that I found hard to put down. It is definitely a book that will stay with me for a long time.
What stuck me most whilst reading this was how realistic the story seemed. Yes there are a few sugary sweet moments but they are interwoven with some of the normal highs and lows that any relationship faces. I found it quite emotional to experience everything alongside the couple and to see how love can change over the years.
The Book of love is a very interesting concept and I wonder if it’s one that is advised in marriage counseling or the like as it seemed to be quite effective. Communication can definitely be a problem in marriage and I think it would be a great idea to have somewhere both people could vent. I’m not sure I’d be able to write so succinctly when angry or upset though and would probably end up making the situation worse as a result, though maybe this is part of a learning curve towards better communication.
This book is very absorbing and I found it both fascinating and comforting to read a fly on the wall account of another couples relationship. There are lots of twists that were often surprising and ensured that I was glued to the page. However the charm of this novel is the way the author slowly develops the characters so that the reader gets to know them intimately. I felt truly invested in their relationship and their lives, feeling every high and low alongside them.
This is the first book I’ve read from this author and I’ll definitely be reading more from her in the future as I thought this book was superb! If you love absorbing, emotional reads then you’ll love this book.
Huge thanks to Harper Collins for my copy of this book via Netgalley.
About The Author:
I’m Fionnuala, pronounced FINOOLA, and am as Irish as the name hints at, though I live just outside London in Ascot. I write character driven novels where I love to poke about under the layers of relationships and see what’s really going on underneath… My debut novel, ‘You, Me and Other People’ was released in 2015 with my second ‘The Day I Lost You’ following in 2016.
October 2018 sees the release of ‘The Book of Love’ my latest novel – a story ‘for everyone who has loved and lost.’
