Product description


When human beings don't talk about love things go wrong. If a mother had told her daughter, even once, that she loved her they might not have spent years without seeing each other. If a man had found the courage to tell a woman that he'd always loved her she might never have married a different man. And if a father had told his daughter that he loved her when her mother died, she might not have suffered the breakdown that caused a rift with her own daughter years later. But if you are born into a family that never talks about love, how do you learn to say the words? "Speaking of Love" is a first novel about what happens when people who love each other don't say so. It is also about the human need for stories and how stories can help make sense of the random nature of life. The novel is set in East Anglia, in London and at a storytelling festival in the grounds of a medieval castle in south Wales.

From the Author

Angela Young was born in 1951. She has had short stories for children published in the American short story magazines, Cricket and Spider, and a story for adults is published in MsLexia. BBC Books published Young's 30,000-word ending to Edith Wharton's last, unfinished novel, The Buccaneers, and, in 2001, Young graduated from Middlesex university's MA in Creative Writing. Speaking of Love is Young's first novel and she is working on her second novel which will be a modern version of Beauty and the Beast.
