The Island Affair by Helena Halme
A grieving mother. Secrets at the heart of the family. A love affair that could destroy everything… After the tragic loss of their 17-year-old son, journalist Alicia and surgeon Liam struggle to keep their marriage afloat. During their usual holiday to Åland, the Nordic islands where Alicia grew up, the rift between the couple deepens. Enter tall, blonde Patrick, with the most piercing blue eyes Alicia has ever seen. When Patrick confides in Alicia about the near loss of his daughter and the breakdown of his marriage, Alicia is surprised to feel an affinity with the Swedish reporter. He’s the only person who understands her. But secrets held by people close to Alicia give her life another surprising turn and she finds there is a new reason to live – and love – again. The Island Affair is perfect for fans of the Neapolitan novels by Elena Ferrante, Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale, and Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.
