'Loving Susie' is not a straightforward romance, although love is at its heart. Every member of the Wallace family finds new love, gets entangled in a fateful relationship or struggles to maintain an established one. It’s a story about a family, and about what happens when secrets surface and trust is undermined. And, as in 'Face the Wind and Fly', the heroine is under pressure from other directions too – this time because she’s an outspoken politician and because her family problems make her take her eye off the ball.
There are big issues woven throughout, and Jenny Harper is great at engaging you with her characters and their problems. And her writing, again, is a delight
Is it ever justifiable to keep a secret from a close family member? This is the dilemma at the heart of this first-rate novel by Jenny Harper.
The secret Archie is hiding from his wife, Susie, is one which, once revealed, affects the whole family and has far-reaching consequences for all their lives.
What starts out as a simple quest gradually erodes the foundations of Susie’s marriage and their children find the comfortable world they have taken for granted is about to fall apart.
This conflict in Susie’s life is set against the background of her high powered job which makes its own demands on her time and her inner resources, especially when her career is threatened with disaster.
The powerful themes of this novel are carried by well developed characters, drawn with a deftness of touch which makes them entirely believable. The way in which the various episodes of the story are inter-woven byt the writer make this a real page-turner, one difficult to put down.
I liked the use of the present tense, not an easy format to handle, as it gave this story an immediacy well-suited to the content.
A novel to be highly recommended.
As in her previous book, 'Face the Wind and Fly', Jenny Harper takes us on a rollercoaster ride of emotional trauma as Susie struggles desperately to save her marriage and get her world back together. The underlying theme in both these novels is how a strong woman reacts when family relationships are in danger of breaking down and work-related pressure is mounting - and the author handles the subject with an expert touch.
Loving Susie is a novel that's hard to put down - I hope there will be many more to come from Jenny.
And adding that it was spoiled for me because it was in the present tense which I don't like reading. However I wanted to read the story, and I did. (The not liking books in the present is a very personal thing, and it doesn't reflect on how much I enjoyed the actual story. I hope that makes sense.)
Jenny Harper clearly knows her subject and it shines through, which is perfect.
I would have like to know more about certain parts of the plot which were left up in the air, but then maybe that was on purpose? I know it's all too easy to go off the point. I can only I hope that (or those) books are written soon. ( though preferably not in the first person :) )
Would I reccomend this? Oh yes, even if you're like me. Because not to read it would mean missing something very special.

Is this the first novel about a female MSP (Member of the Scottish Parliament)? I don’t think I’ve heard of another one – and Jenny Harper is well qualified to write it. Read morePublished on 2 July 2014 by Marjorette
