Susan Richards Shreve “You Are the Love of My Life”
October 26th, 2012
A single mother and her two kids move from New York to Washington, D.C. in 1973, to try and engineer a fresh start. But in Susan Richards Shreve‘s novel “You Are the Love of My Life” that goal seems elusive.
Lucy Painter has left the married-to-someone-else father of her children to live in a tightly-knit Washington neighborhood — in the house where she grew up, and where she discovered her father’s suicide.
It develops that Lucy’s life is full of secrets. Her children know nothing of her father’s death, or the identity of their own father.
And as the new neighbors enter their insular lives, Lucy’s family’s safety and stability become threatened.
