Book Description

22 Jan 2007
Say You Love Me is a powerful, sensitive yet shocking,
exploration of the long-lasting traumas caused by parental sexual abuse.
Marion Husband's superbly drawn characters, loving and hating freely, both
fascinate and repel.

Ben Walker sets out to trace his father and discover the truth about his
adoption in 1968. But the past holds secrets that his brother Mark is
desperate to keep. Old hatreds between the brothers are rekindled and their
adopted father is made to face his own guilt over the events of that spring
of 1968.

More About the Author

Having had a few short stories published, in 2001 I was accepted on to the MA in Creative Writing at Northumbria University, a two-year, part time course that covered both poetry and prose. In 2003 I graduated with a distinction and won the Blackwell Prize for Best Performance. Whilst I was on the course I finished my first novel The Boy I Love, which was published in July 2005 and went on to the top the Independent Publisher chart on Amazon. Since then I have had three more novels published: Paper Moon, (which won the Andrea Badenoch Award) Say You Love Me and The Good Father (which was long-listed for the Impac Prize). In 2003 Mudfog published a collection of my poetry, Service. At the moment I am working on my fifth novel. I also teach writing at Adult Education colleges and have taught on the MA courses for Teesside, Northumbria and Newcastle universities - teaching writing to students of all abilities and trying to draw out the best in their writing. I am often asked to read my work in venues throughout the country.

The previous paragraph reads as though my writing has always met with success, but of course before those 'few short stories' were published I struggled for many years - writing and destroying a couple of novels, discarding still more after a few pages, sending other novels off to agents and publishers with a great deal of hope and finger-crossing (and other magical thinking). Rejections followed; I'd write some more, give up, cry, start again, cry, start again. To be a published writer demands persistence and I would say a thick skin, but I'm not sure I have one of those, more an ability to get over the disappointments and convince myself that rejections aren't meant personally, however much they hurt. My consolation was (and is - as rejections remain part of my life) that I tried my best, and wrote what I wanted to write about in my own way. I write about relationships, mainly those between brothers and fathers and sons; I write a lot about sexual relationships, too: jealousies and obsessions, adultery and promiscuity. I'm very interested in war, and how men returning from war are treated and how they attempt to fit back into civilian life.

I live near Middlesbough in north east England, am 48, married (since 1985) with two children - Kay, aged 24, and Greg, 23. There's a bit about me on the web if you google my name, including a few reviews of my novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 25 July 2007
Format:Paperback
I don't usually feel moved enough by a novel to write a review - far too busy/lazy/forgetful - but I have just finished reading Say You Love Me - in a few days as it's completely unput-downable - and wanted to share with everyone just how fab this novel is. The story moves from the present to 1968 and back again, weaving the two stories together so seamlessly but still keeping up a real, breathless pace. Loved this book my only complaint is that it made me feel so sad and scared in parts...Is that a complaint...? Anyway, read it, especially if you;ve become as jaded as I was at the same old same old...

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantasic, moving and compelling page-turner 21 Feb 2007
Format:Paperback
I read this book in only two days - unable to put it down. Having read Marion Husband's first two novels, The Boy I Love and Paper Moon, I was realy looking forward to reading this one and it didn't let me down. I fell in love with the main characters and was totally convinced by them and absorbed - I really had to find out what happened. Say You Love Me is a very thought provoking,compelling read and the controversial subject matter is handled very sensitively and well. This is another, extremely readable novel from Marion Husband who is one of the most entertaining writers I've read for a long time, her writing just keeps getting better - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 13 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant.
Marian Husband draws you in slowly. I had a great sense of feeling the horror and despair created in its narrative. The insight into the minds of those involved was so deep I felt like it was happening to me! The story is surprising as it unfolds to a complexity that you do not see.

This book leaves me with thoughts that I know will mull round in my head for a while yet.

Marion Husband is a beautiful writer. She has the ability to show a real insight into human emotions and relationships.
